The laboratory-clinic interface

Piero CAPPELLETTI

SIPMeL, Castelfranco Veneto, Treviso, Italia

The laboratory-clinic interface is the place where the exchange of information (and of materials) takes place, i.e. the clinician's request and the laboratory's response. For a more complete description of the generation of diagnostic information, the complementarity of the concept of laboratory-clinical interface and that of the brain-to-brain loop was highlighted. The laboratory-clinical interface today is complicated by the plurality of actors who can communicate with the laboratory; from the diagnostic areas that need to be known; by the amplified extension of the different ways of contact; from the non-traditional forms in which the contact takes place. And yet there remains a central point in the meaning of the discipline: providing diagnostic information for patient care.
