Clinical Laboratory costs account for less than 3% of the total healthcare cost yet it is estimated that 70% of medical decisions are influenced by these tests. These include diagnosis, prognosis and risk assessment, preventive and screening for illnesses and monitoring and management of treatment. In addition, aggregate test results data are used for public health surveillance, health care performance measurement and quality improvement. Data derived from clinical trials provides new knowledge for innovation, evidence based medicine and improved clinical practice guidelines all of which drives clinical laboratory testing [1].
