A possible grouping of elements defining our present healthcare environment vis-a-vis the DCLS
can be comprised of (1) rapid technological expansion within the clinical laboratory, (1) (2) the current complex regulatory and financial environment for healthcare delivery, (1) and (3) emergence of an "advanced practice" or "advanced degree" construct in many professions.
