Webinar: A recipe for success in exploiting machine learning and data science

June 17 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am EDT

"An often-quoted promise of big data and data science used to be: invest in databases and algorithms to process data and you will gain new insights, even reducing the need for subject matter experts. The seduction of a life of leisure seemed within our grasp!

While this is commendable in its eagerness to encourage better exploitation of data, the reality is very different – as explained by David Hand of Imperial College London and senior technical manager Malcolm Moore. In addition, JMP senior systems engineer Emmanuel Romeu will provide a live demo.

Effective data science needs:

* Communication and teamwork
* Clarity about what you want to know
* A firm grasp of the data
* Understanding of the quality of the data
* The ability to extract information from data

Much of this is beyond the current capabilities of databases and algorithms. As such, subject matter knowledge is needed at all stages of extracting helpful knowledge from data.

Put another way, data science and big data need subject matter experts to succeed. Companies get the most value from data by enabling experts to apply statistical and data science methods, resulting in better decision making with increased certainty."

Webinar: Patient-Centered Laboratory Medicine: Driving Improved Outcomes

June 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

"The COVID-19 Pandemic has demonstrated how much healthcare depends on the clinical laboratory, but it also has demonstrated how much opportunity remains to improve clinician’s and patient’s knowledge about laboratory medicine. Even before the pandemic, published research found that clinicians frequently are uncertain of what tests to order or what actions to take based on the test results. In addition to these unmet needs, we also know that clinically relevant opportunities for further improvements in the total testing process are found more frequently outside the clinical laboratory than inside. The chance to strengthen the cognitive and system components of the testing ecosystem present laboratory physicians and scientists with a major opportunity to address unmet needs of clinical pathology and improve patient outcomes. During this presentation, we will explore the value of timely and accurate diagnosis and the role the clinical laboratory can play in improving it. Case studies demonstrating improvement approaches will be shared along with strategies for driving initiatives to improve patient outcomes."

Webinar: Research has Changed—Five Ways to Navigate the Post-Pandemic Lab

July 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

"Very often, time spent saving money costs more money than it saves. So, managers must evaluate how lab staff are spending their time. Where are the bottlenecks that waste precious time?

Some of the key questions to ask include:

* Does the lab have the right collaboration tools to enable a hybrid workforce to manage all of the interactions required for the lab?
* Does the lab have the right mechanics to find the right things the lab needs?
* Can you find a more efficient way to place orders?
* Have you organized your space to store incoming orders effectively?
* Would a single system to track and inventory orders benefit everyone?

Resolving these questions can make significant time savings. This helps the critical paths deliver, which means real productivity, and real savings."

"Join Lab Manager and our panel of experts as we discuss ways to increase your productivity and cost savings as you navigate the post-pandemic lab."
