Generally employed as a "main" management application for a given business or enterprise, an ERP is typically the matrix into which a selection of more specific apps are integrated.[1] In the laboratory, scientific and health community, the central mission often dictates the application that performs the ERP role, with mission-specific apps often having expanded in recent years to fulfill a larger role. For instance, in the case of laboratories, the LIMS or LIS today is expected to meet not only sample-tracking requirements, but to offer full reporting capabilities, inventory management, instrument integration and calibration/maintenance management, etc. For many healthcare delivery environments, the EHR has expanded into a fuller management role, with appointment scheduling, order management, etc.
