Data received from the HL7 transactions is stored in a message bank that allows easy retrieval of the data for retrospective analysis. The ability to have access to all clinical data for an institution is invaluable for research and development and generating or testing hypotheses using large data sets. In the clinical laboratory, these techniques are becoming useful in areas as diverse as infection control, medical process monitoring and improvement, technical quality control and laboratory workflow design.
