[[Limspec]]s are not an attempt by the [[limswiki:Laboratory Informatics Institute|Laboratory Informatics Institute]] to create arbitrary standards, but rather to '''''harmonize''''' existing standards from different organizations and regulations (see [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmonization_(standards)]. LIMSpec specifications are designed to help both system users and vendors alike, for any kind of information management applications or systems in the laboratory, scientific and healthcare community. Specifications from applicable organizations (e.g. FDA, EPA, CLIA, HIPAA, etc.) are sifted through and specs created that (a) contain the common points, (b) identify and provide applicable unique specs from each and (c) do it in clear, understandable language, along with any additional information to help the reader more fully comprehend it.

A LIMSpec for a given type of application helps vendors to build to and assess their existing applications relative to market needs. And in responding to LIMSpec requirements, they have the opportunity to communicate to the marketplace exactly how their products and services meet those needs - which helps the potential buyer to make more informed choices in their selection process. Information is more freely available and all parties are the better for it.

Welcome to the Limspec Wiki, a repository of specifications and more for informatics software


Limspec has served as a tool for managing the evaluation process of a laboratory information management system (LIMS) or a laboratory information system (LIS) since 2007.[1] It has seen several iterations since then, transforming into a more comprehensive collection of requirements and specifications for systems beyond LIMS and LIS. Now a wide variety of requirement datasheets can be generated and housed based upon a collection of hundreds of individual specifications.

Standards Harmonization

Limspecs are not an attempt by the Laboratory Informatics Institute to create arbitrary standards, but rather to harmonize existing standards from different organizations and regulations (see [1]. LIMSpec specifications are designed to help both system users and vendors alike, for any kind of information management applications or systems in the laboratory, scientific and healthcare community. Specifications from applicable organizations (e.g. FDA, EPA, CLIA, HIPAA, etc.) are sifted through and specs created that (a) contain the common points, (b) identify and provide applicable unique specs from each and (c) do it in clear, understandable language, along with any additional information to help the reader more fully comprehend it.

Usage

A LIMSpec for a given type of application helps vendors to build to and assess their existing applications relative to market needs. And in responding to LIMSpec requirements, they have the opportunity to communicate to the marketplace exactly how their products and services meet those needs - which helps the potential buyer to make more informed choices in their selection process. Information is more freely available and all parties are the better for it.


Here you can find numerous tools related to the new Limspec.
