Webinar: Improving Clinical Lab Performance: How Lean Six Sigma Methods Help Eliminate Waste, Save Money, and Increase Productivity

"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."

Webinar: Establishing QC Targets and Ranges for Multiple Instruments

"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."

ResultWorks Webinar – Emerging Technologies’ Impact on Digital Transformation in Life Science

Date:  Tuesday August 30th, 2022, 1 pm ET

About the Webinar

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.

Webinar: FHIR: Where are we now?

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.

Webinar: Techniques and Tips: Learn Sample Preparation for Next Generation Sequencing

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) provides comprehensive genomic information about disease, development, and other biological processes. Though the NGS workflow has been vastly simplified, there are still technical aspects required for a successful experiment. Sample preparation remains a critical step for optimal results from NGS. This webinar provides information about: (1) techniques for nucleic acid extraction (2) instruments for nucleic acid extraction and their workflow (3) Tips and tricks for good quality sample extracts.

Webinar: Rising to the Challenge – The Expanding Role of AI Technology is Healthcare

The demand for AI technology to help address challenges in care delivery, quality and outcomes is surging. Healthcare organizations require intuitive, innovative solutions that redefine the healthcare experience for patients, physicians, and administrators, alike.During this webinar, you will learn:

* Current obstacles healthcare organizations are facing
* Technology factors that drive innovation

Webinar: MicrobeTrace: A Data Visualization and Analysis Tool for Outbreak Investigations

"Outbreak data can be hard to visualize without specialized programming skills or tools. MicrobeTrace, a free versatile data visualization and analysis tool, illustrates genetic and epidemiological links to identify connections among the data to help control outbreaks. Using this tool, data can be readily imported, integrated and visualized - no coding skills or special licenses required! MicrobeTrace is currently used to visualize contact tracing and sequence data by the CDC, state health departments and academic research groups in the US and internationally. This webinar will provide an overview of MicrobeTrace and how it can be used for an array of bacteria and viruses, including HIV, SARS-CoV-2, viral hepatitis and tuberculosis."

Webinar: The Past, Present, and Future of Laboratory Automation

"Automating laboratory workflows improves the overall efficiency of testing by speeding up tasks, minimizing waste, reducing reagent usage, and facilitating higher throughput. Optimizing operational efficiency through automation leads to lower running costs, the elimination of errors inherent in manual processes, a reduction in repetitive motion injuries, and improved accuracy and reliability of data.

Laboratory workflows can be classified into three categories: manual, stand-alone automation (i.e., modular), and total lab automation (TLA). Size, complexity, and testing volumes are key factors in determining the best approach to automating a lab, and a properly designed business case outlining the long-term cost savings and growth capacity is critical to ensure sustained value."

"This webinar is appropriate for laboratory administrators and managers, quality assurance and control staff, supervisors, and other laboratory personnel who are dedicated to continuous quality and process improvement."

Digital Roundtable Event – Why modern systems are needed for true digital transformation
