Webinar: Preparing Your Radiology Practice and IT Department for Big Data and AI

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

"Current and near future requirements and constraints will require radiology practices to continuously improve and demonstrate the value they add to the enterprise. Merely "managing the practice" will not be sufficient; groups will be required to compete in an environment where the goal will be measurable improvements in efficiency, productivity, quality, and safety.

This will require optimally leveraging IT enabled business intelligence, analytics, and data driven workflow. In many ways, this challenge can be described as a "Big Data" problem, requiring the application of newer "Big Data" and machine learning approaches and tools. Unfortunately, many have discovered that an "EMR centric" IT perspective may severely limit the ability for the enterprise to maximally leverage these newer tools to create differentiable value.

This webinar will provide an introduction to the importance of developing a comprehensive architectural strategy to augment the existing EMR to more effectively consume "Big Data" and AI tools."

Webinar: Challenges in hemostasis test standardization

September 9 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PDT

"Standardization and harmonization of coagulation testing methods have come a long way in the last 3 to 4 decades; however, standardization is imperfect. Laboratory professionals need to recognize the limitations of some of our most commonly used coagulation tests. The INR system has harmonized prothrombin time across methods and platforms for the purpose of monitoring warfarin, but the system does not harmonize very high INR values nor does it harmonize INR values in the setting of liver disease. Many hospital-based laboratories perform a one stage factor VIII assay to support a wide range of clinical indications. In the last decade, important biases have been demonstrated between one stage assays and chromogenic assays when diagnosing hemophilia A patients or monitoring new hemophilia therapies. Finally, quantitative D-dimer assays have excellent negative predictive value to exclude venous thromboembolism. Unfortunately, there is a lack of standardization, and even a lack of a standardized unit of measure. Implementation of D-dimer requires careful attention to both the unit of magnitude and the unit type, especially when using different instrumentation across a laboratory system."

A webinar sponsored by the Astrix Technology Group
Date: Thursday, September 12th, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM EDT / 10:00 AM PDT


Overview:

Laboratory informatics systems have often been implemented in a bottoms-up “transactional” manner: CDS, LIMS, ELN, LES, etc. are brought in to deliver specific capabilities in an organic fashion. As these implementations mount, there are several significant implications, some of which are:

  • Overlaps among the systems become critical factors in the quality of information produced and determination of authoritative data.
  • Obtaining an end to end picture of the data from a scientific process requires significant depth of knowledge in and access to many systems.

At the same time, there are significant business drivers that are putting additional pressure on laboratory information, some of which are:

  • Handling of increasingly diverse drug products.
  • Meeting the increasing needs of the R&D organization to be flexible and responsive.
  • Improving the systematic management of product data and processes where data consistency and availability are critical.

This webinar will address these challenges by framing the current state and discussing opportunities and approaches to a achieving a holistic digital strategy for the lab, one that encompasses the relationships between systems and the lifecycle of data. ​ Representative initiatives and roadmaps will be discussed emphasizing a pragmatic and actionable point of view.

Webinar: PTM Analysis: How to Marry Speed and Confidence in R&D

September 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT

"Even the most well-controlled LC-MS methodologies are subject to a wide array of variables such as LC conditions, type of mass spectrometer, data acquisition rates, etc. All of these variables can impact the raw data. Regardless, the investigator will ultimately end up with an uneditable raw mass spectrometry data file in a vendor-specific format. While this locked, uneditable file in theory represents a firm and fixed point at which experimental variability ceases, the reality is that downstream software analysis can introduce as much or more variability in the dataset than that derived from instrumentation and sample prep.

In this webinar, Jon Reed will focus on how an automated, vendor-neutral software analysis of PTMs in biotherapeutics can be optimized for speed, and provide a framework from which data can inform confident decisions in a research environment."

Webinar: Moving Beyond Single Gene-Drug Pairs in Clinical Pharmacogenomics Testing

September 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT

"Pharmacogenomics (PGx) studies the associations between discrete variants in single genes and the phenotype for specific aspects of a drug’s pharmacokinetics or pharmacodynamics. These associations are used to qualify patients for therapy (e.g., CYP2C19 and clopidogrel), to avoid drug-related adverse events (e.g., TPMT and mercaptopurines), and to optimize drug and dose selection (e.g., CYP2D6 and several antidepressants). However, clinical PGx testing based on single gene-drug associations has limited clinical utility when patients take more than one medication. For some drugs, limitations of single gene-drug associations may be mitigated by combining the testing of several pharmacogenes based on single gene-drug associations along with clinical and demographic factors. Emerging evidence shows the benefits of multi-gene panels in clinical PGx testing. This presentation will review examples of single and multi-gene PGx testing applied to drug therapy decisions."

Webinar: Demand Collaboration with your Existing IT Platforms

September 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

"Interoperability requires an ecosystem that many other industries have already implemented. Inevitably, healthcare will be soon to follow. Harnessing the increasing amount of data that care providers manage, along with the consolidation of the industry will depend on a collaborative culture that thrives in a multi-vendor environment. We understand that we are only just beginning to overcome the siloed nature of healthcare and establishing new connections among not only departments, but also into other facilities. As the trend of healthcare organization, consolidation continues so will the need to distribute information between multiple systems. We advocate for the implementation of a new interoperability solution to support internal and external systems integration, without the need to replace existing vendors in place. We will describe an example of how we have implemented such a solution, and how it extended the functionality of an existing EHR at a fraction of the replacement cost."

Webinar: “MDRO” and “nMDRO”: A Briefing for Clinical and Public Health Microbiologists

September 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

"Bacteria isolated from diagnostic and surveillance specimens are becoming increasingly resistant to antimicrobial agents. Organisms resistant to key agents in multiple antimicrobial classes commonly used for treatment are referred to as multi-drug resistant organisms (MDRO). MDRO that are uncommon and/or have unusual types of resistance are labeled novel MDRO (nMDRO) and these are typically more difficult to treat (fewer therapeutic options). Identification of both MDRO and nMDRO starts in the diagnostic laboratory where it is essential to use reliable methods for testing and reporting. This session will cover definitions of MDRO and nMDRO and what clinical and public health microbiologists must do to help clinicians identify treatment options and help infection prevention and public health professionals minimize their spread."

Webinar: Balancing Data Access with Privacy and Security – HHS’ Proposed Information Blocking Rules

October 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

"In spring 2019, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) at HHS proposed wide-ranging policies detailing a new legal prohibition on “information blocking,” which aim to encourage greater information sharing and interoperability across healthcare stakeholders, including providers, developers of health IT, health information networks and exchanges. While the proposed rule primarily focuses on enabling data sharing, there are two major exceptions for privacy and security—and healthcare organizations will need to understand how to balance these competing interests.

In this webinar, Jodi Daniel, former policymaker at ONC and partner at Crowell & Moring, and Brandon Ge, associate at Crowell & Moring, will explain the future direction and impact of these proposed policies, how these policies interact with existing regulations such as HIPAA, and share practical tips on how organizations can get prepared for implementation and compliance."

Webinar: Patient Engagement Apps – Help or Hype?

October 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

"Improved outcomes. Medication adherence. Meaningful engagement. These are just some of the promises of patient engagement apps marketed as groundbreaking and innovative. But do they live up to the hype? This webinar will tackle the belief that new mobile apps always provide an improved and more engaged patient experience.

The webinar will provide an exclusive first-hand look at the findings from BBK’s Study Voices, Volume 3 survey which examines patient, physician, and study sponsor attitudes towards patient engagement apps. It will explore survey findings that reveal insights on app usage, preferred features, satisfaction levels, and much more! It will shed light on the ongoing debate of whether technology or content is more important for engagement, and it will provide guidance on where to invest for maximum benefit.

Data presented will empower clinical trial sponsors with insight to help them evaluate new apps and determine the best strategic approach for clinical trial engagement success."

Webinar: Analytical and Clinical Validation Requirements for Next Generation Sequencing Laboratory-Developed Tests

October 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

"Next generation sequencing (NGS) has revolutionized molecular diagnostic testing. It is important to note that, as with many molecular diagnostic tests currently in clinical use, there are very few FDA-approved or FDA-cleared NGS assays, and thus analytical and clinical assay validation of laboratory-developed tests (LDTs) is essential to the application of NGS technology for clinical diagnostic testing. Both analytical and clinical performance parameters must be established for NGS-based LDTs. Analytical performance parameters include accuracy, precision, reportable range, and reference interval, as well as analytical sensitivity, analytical specificity, and any other parameter that is considered important to assure the analytical performance of a particular test (e.g., specimen stability, carryover). The clinical validity and clinical utility of the testing must also be considered. The College of American Pathologists (CAPs) Molecular Pathology Checklist requirements, universally recognized as providing best-in-class standards for clinical laboratory testing, address the analytical and clinical validation of NGS-based LDTs."

Webinar: Building the Right Team for Success in the Consolidated Enterprise

October 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

"As healthcare provider enterprises change, so must the teams that support them. Management responsibilities shift from departments to corporate IT, and roles and responsibilities that were traditionally at each facility are moved to a shared team with enterprise-wide responsibility. Thus, the design and reporting lines of the team, and the skills of its members need to be re-examined.

On top of this, the software applications and integrations are changing, and new technologies, like Artificial Intelligence (AI), are on the horizon. Reporting lines, job descriptions, key performance indicators (KPIs), professional development strategies, right sizing the team for the work to be done...these are all aspects to be examined.

Webinar attendees will learn from expert speakers on how they are transforming their organization's team to address today's (and tomorrow's) enterprise imaging staff challenges."
