A very interesting post. I think that the best of breed LIS's trying to find a way to move into this space is probably going to be very difficult for them. Why would the EMR vendors (Cerner, Epic), who have a built in lab system want to interface that data to a standalone LIS when they can provide the soup to nuts solution, including that analytics component? And why would an IT department want to spend the time/money to do that integration, given if the lab would just use the "built in" LIS, no integration would be needed, or since the lab results are sent back to the EMR, do the analytics there... I certainly think those best of breed systems do need to continually evolve and add better functionality, I'm just not sure this is a path they would want to tread in an attempt to add value.
