Patients depend on the knowledge and skills of many different medical professionals all working together to provide quality medical care. With all the innovations in medicine over the past 30 years, it really does take a team- the best medical team that can be assembled to manage a patient’s care. Laboratory professionals, while one of many on that team, are among the most critical. Patients’ health does, indeed, depend on laboratory professionals.
