Wallach’s Interpretation of Diagnostic Tests Pathways to Arriving at a Clinical Diagnosis TENTH EDITION Laboratory testing is an integral part of modern medical practice. Although clinical laboratory testing
accounts for only 2.3% of annual health care costs in the United States, it plays a major role in the
clinical decisions made by physicians, nurses, and other health care providers for the overall management of disease. More than 4,000 laboratory tests are available for clinical use, and about 500 of them are performed regularly. The number of Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)-certified laboratories has grown to exceed more than 200,000.

workforce comprises pathologists, doctorallevel laboratory scientists, technologists, and technicians,
who play a vital role in the health care system. The health care system is increasingly dependent on reliable clinical laboratory services; however, as part of the overall health care system, these laboratory evaluations are prone to errors.

Laboratory medicine comprises more than just the use of chemicals and reagents for the measurement of various analytes for clinical diagnosis purposes.

health care
