throughput

(throo′pŭt″)
1. In hospital management, the sum of the services provided by a health care institution per unit of time. It includes the number of patients treated, admitted, and discharged; the total number of procedures performed; and the quantity of laboratory or radiological services rendered. It is a measure of institutional volume or capacity and a determinant of productivity.
2. In the laboratory, the analysis, processing, or testing of multiple samples. Techniques that foster the rapid or simultaneous processing of multiple samples are called high-throughput.
