The LMIP has long been cast in the country's Philippine Energy Plan - as early as the 1990s when the power sector was still dominated by vertically-integrated National Power Corporation.
Data were collected using a previously described format. Briefly, participants in the LMIP program annually completed a questionnaire describing their institution and the patient population they served.
To ensure comparability of participant responses, LMIP established standard definitions and procedures for recording labor inputs (paid and worked hours), nonlabor expenses (consumables, blood, reference laboratory costs, equipment maintenance, and depreciation), hospital activity (days and discharges), and test counts (LMIP Standardized Billable Test).
Participants' quarterly data submissions were prospectively subjected to several internal validity checks that are incorporated into the LMIP program.
For this reason, the LMIP program has strict definitions of what constitutes a test to be counted, and it compares a lab with other labs of similar characteristics.
LMIP is a subscription program with 770 participating labs.
* In terms of productivity, 4th quarter results from the LMIP indicated that productivity improved by 17% (see Figure 2).
This projection is based on the improvement in productivity (which was already in the top 5% without preanalytical automation) as seen in our laboratory via the LMIP.
While four laboratories used the LMIP to measure productivity, most used billable tests per man hour.
THE LABORATORY Management Index Program (LMIP) is a management program for laboratory administrators that was created by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Fiscal Management Committee.
LMIP facilitates peer comparison based on laboratory output--for example, on the number of billed or ordered tests--as well as on a "complexity index" that takes into account the degree of patient illness and the complexity of testing.
In paving the way for LMIP, the CAP Board of Governors voted not to publish the 1993 Workload Recording (WLR) Manual and to discontinue support for the Workload program.
