I have read your article, it’s simply good. Paperless environment will be certainly more appropriate in medical laboratory. As you have already mentioned its benefits, I would like to add that there are many laboratory information systems that offer many great features like workflow and data tracking support, smart data exchange interfaces and great flexibility, which make lab technician work easier and quicker too.
