PART 2 WEBINAR OBJECTIVE
When you are considering lab informatics and automation projects, someone is going to ask “what is the return on the investment you’re asking for?”. How do you answer them? That is the purpose of this webinar, the second in this series entitled A Guide for Management: Successfully Applying Laboratory Systems to Your Organization’s Work.
The introduction of informatics/automation technologies into laboratory work will require larger investments than typical lab bench spending and involves people from outside support groups. It also touches on knowledge and intellectual property management, an increasingly important corporate topic. Your ability to address these points with the Return On Investment conversation will have a direct impact on the approval of your projects. Join us as we begin to look into these considerations.
ABOUT THE WEBINAR SERIES
A Guide for Management: Successfully Applying Laboratory Systems to Your Organization’s Work is a webinar series 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 or improve your labs operations, and the considerations that need to be taken into account before they are purchased.
The series 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
