Pathology labs often make use of MS Word to generate lab reports. These reports lack in accuracy. As MS Word is not designed to analyse the age, gender and other necessary details of the patient.While on the other hand with LabSmart you can overcome this drawback of MS Word as it offers auto-calculation for Bilirubin, Indirect, MCH, MCHC, MCV etc.
Reference ranges with LabSmart!
MS Word does not have reference ranges to work with. And test results are of no relevance without them.

This helps with generating highly accurate reports with no chances of misreading. As a result benefiting the doctors as well as the patients.
