Collaborative approaches can help develop the quality and efficiency of the clinical microbiology laboratory with the goal of improving patient outcomes. The webinar will utilize real world examples to demonstrate collaborative strategies. It will also discuss how to capture data on impact of these efforts and the importance of this approach in demonstrating the value of the laboratory.
"This webinar will provide a review of the 2021 – 2022 respiratory virus season and will highlight our surveillance strategies and challenges for 2022-2023, based on our expectations, for the upcoming respiratory virus season.
Additional topics that will be discussed include a background in influenza and influenza surveillance, updates on the influenza vaccine strain components, new vaccine technologies for influenza vaccines in the future (mRNA vaccines, etc.), updates on influenza transmission globally, SARS-CoV-2 updates including continued WGS for strain surveillance, and updates on other respiratory virus activity and surveillance programs.
A certificate of participation will be granted to each participant based on 1.0 contact hours of instruction toward credit."
"Today’s law enforcement organizations need more than a LIMS. Historically, Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) were designed for testing labs. A conventional LIMS, for example, could be utilized to test water samples or raw materials in a manufacturing process. Forensic organizations require a case-focused system that encompasses the full evidentiary life cycle. For example, in the market, there are stand-alone quality management systems. A better approach is to employ a system that incorporates quality features to support compliance with ISO17025 and other regulatory bodies."
"As an attendee, you will learn more about:
* Why you need a forensic information management system versus a generic LIMS
* What functions should you expect in a forensic information management system
* How can you be confident the underlying technology is rigorous enough to support your operation for years to come"
"The practice of medicine is changing rapidly to include the introduction of automated and algorithmic solutions to clinical and operational challenges. These approaches represent a dramatic improvement over manual paper-based healthcare practices.
In this webinar, Dr. Daniel Holmes will provide examples of data analytics applications in laboratory medicine to demonstrate how laboratory data can be leveraged to improve healthcare delivery and operations. Exploration of data analytic tools, including select applications of machine learning, will be covered to illustrate how they can be utilized to automate manual laboratory processes, develop new quality monitoring and assurance tools, and support clinical/operational decisions. Dr. Holmes will demonstrate how the analysis of laboratory data yields information that is necessary for the evidence-based planning and decision making in the health care system."
