"Shrinking budgets. Reduced Medicare reimbursement for diagnostic tests. Customer service gaps. Inefficiencies and Staff Shortages. Conquering these (and other) challenges is critical for the financial success of clinical laboratories and pathology practices.
On this webinar you’ll find a proven path to overcoming these obstacles through the principles behind Lean Six Sigma. These methods offer a real world approach to process improvement and better quality of service to patients, physicians, and other customers. Labs that are adopting Lean Six Sigma methods are reaping the benefits.
Attend and see how Lean Six Sigma seeks to eliminate waste in all its forms, removing anything from a process that doesn’t add value, including common activities related to reimbursement, customer service, patient safety, lab test quality, blood collection, and more."

"Laboratories with more than one identical instrument need to be able to calculate and understand their actual laboratory performance, because the physician and patient are interested in the quality of the results irrespective of which instrument performed the test. Based on this overall performance it is important to design a quality control (QC) strategy across these instruments. This webinar will describe the difference between the traditional instrument focused assessments and a patient focused assessment. It will also provide guidance on how to establish the QC targets and QC ranges when using multiple instruments."

We in the Life Science industry are in a challenging race to bring proven new drugs to market to address an ever-expanding variety of disease targets. To do this, we must harness the data we are generating as well as the vast amount of data available across the industry. It is about speed, productivity, and generating new insights in a timely way. It is in fact a digital transformation.
A digital transformation requires a critical look at our current data environment to understand what is and isn’t working. Looking forward, we need to design FAIR* (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) data practices into our R&D technology strategies. It is essential to have emerging technologies such as AI, machine learning, automation, analytics and others as a key element of our technology strategy in order to have a positive impact on the efficiency and effectiveness, and to achieve a FAIR environment.
Companies that are realizing true digital transformation are already exploring and adopting emerging technologies with their mainstream technology platforms to improve the quality and usability of their data.

A new report from ONC, looking at 2019 data, shows that adoption of FHIR APIs for interoperability has taken off in recent years. But the data also showed hospitals are faring considerably better than individual clinicians and some regions of the country are lagging significantly behind others. In this webinar we’ll bring in some experts, analysts, and researchers to talk about the current state of healthcare API adoption, especially FHIR, and how close we are to real API-driven interoperability. We’ll also talk about the Cures Act and the state of regulation around interoperability and APIs, the state of the technology itself, and what experts see coming up in the future.

"As COVID-19 changes from pandemic to endemic, laboratories will likely face challenges in the rapid shift in testing capacity needs. In particular, laboratories will have invested in infrastructure, testing platforms, and highly skilled personnel, which can now be leveraged for other molecular testing needs with appropriate planning. Adapting to these changes are crucial to making the best use of excess testing capacities in a post-COVID-19 lab environment.
This webinar will focus on how clinical laboratories can assess their current molecular testing capabilities and how excess capacity can be adapted to meet other molecular testing, including infectious disease testing. Moreover, the webinar will provide market insights, testing trends, and details on how laboratories can create an implementation plan to continue to evolve their business."
