Webinar: Adapt or Collapse: Data Sharing Across Boundaries to Enable Population Health

October 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

"Data as it exists today is vastly disconnected and underutilized. In this webinar, we’ll explore both real and perceived technical constraints to interoperability, along with primary business drivers for integrating and sharing data to enable population health—and we’ll present a solution to bring it all together.

* Make competition more comfortable: Share data across organizations and providers to enable thorough analyses and avoid redundancies, while simultaneously not running afoul of competing business interests;
* Identify ROI for population health management: Make sense of the influx of population management tools and know whether they are generating real and measurable value; and
* Reduce redundancies and increase margins: Tracking patients longitudinally and reducing unnecessary diagnostic and treatment procedures requires a comprehensive picture of their lives, informed via multiple data sources from providers to wearables, requires combining different data assets on demand"

Speaker: Philip R.O. Payne, PhD, FACMI, Chief Science Officer at Signet Accel

Webinar: Where to go from here: Next-generation clinical mass spectrometry

October 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

"Mass spectrometry has gained tremendous interests in clinical applications in the past decade to serve patients needs. While there are many new applications of the technology, there are many challenges in further implementation of this technology. This presentation will discuss the current challenges to implement mass spectrometry in clinical laboratories, particularly in automation and training.

Mass spectrometry has been mainly for detection of small molecules. Many efforts have been devoted to broaden its application for next generation clinical mass spectrometry analysis in areas such as the analysis of proteins and peptides, low concentration compounds, high resolution detection, and multiple disease panels. In addition to the applications in clinical chemistry and microbiology, much research has been done for tissue imaging and cancer diagnostics in the field of anatomic pathology. This presentation will provide an overview of these areas and their potential impact of clinical mass spectrometry on the betterment of patient care."

Webinar “A Guide for Management: Successfully Applying Laboratory Systems to Your Organization’s Work Part 1”

October 26 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

This webinar series is designed as a management level view of laboratory systems and is appropriate for anyone planning, reviewing, or approving the acquisition of laboratory informatics. A background in science is not necessary to follow the webinar material.  Its purpose is to provide you with an understanding of how these technologies (Laboratory Information Management Systems, Electronic Laboratory Notebooks, Scientific Data Management Systems, Laboratory Execution Systems, Instrument Data Systems, and supporting technologies ) can be used to support/improve your labs operations, and the considerations that need to be taken into account before they are purchased.

The sessions will include the following points as well as others:

  • Return On Investment - if the investment had been in the stock market the expected return would be easy to specify and measure, but what return do you look for in lab work and that the investment was wisely made?
  • Choosing the right system components - the planning and evaluation process
  • Minimizing risks
  • Support requirements
  • Regulatory issues
  • Keys to successful implementations
  • Informatics technologies and their role in laboratory work
If you are interested in the technical details of laboratory technologies, you might be interested in reading the companion volume “Computerized Systems in the Modern Laboratory: A Practical Guide” available through the Parenteral Drug Association.

Webinar: The UCLA Health Resident Informaticist Program – A Novel Clinical Informatics Training Program

October 31 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

"Few opportunities exist for physician trainees to gain training in clinical informatics, an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) -accredited, board-certified specialty. Currently, twenty-one (21) approved programs exist nationwide for the formal training of fellows interested in pursuing careers in this discipline. Residents and fellows in training have few avenues available to gain experience in clinical informatics, largely due to an already full curriculum. An early introduction to clinical informatics brings an opportunity to generate interest for future career trajectories. In 2013, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Health developed a novel, successful, and sustainable program, known as the Resident Informaticist Program, with the goals of exposing physician trainees to the field of clinical informatics and its academic nature and providing opportunities to expand the clinical informatics workforce.

This presentation will provide an overview of the development, implementation, and current state of the UCLA Health Resident Informaticist Program, with a blueprint for development of similar programs."

Webinar: Stop Drowning in Paper! How Laboratory Information Management Systems Can Aid in your Data Integrity

November 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST

"Manual processes created to ensure Data Integrity are onerous by placing large paperwork overheads on analysts. Working with hybrid systems forces laboratories to manage two incompatible media formats: paper and electronic records. This presentation will show you how a laboratory information management system (LIMS) can facilitate automation of your processes whilst ensuring the highest standard of Data Integrity. If a process is automated, validated, and transparent, it not only becomes more user-friendly - it also makes it easy for regulators to conduct audits."
