Webinar: Solving Common Hematopathology Testing Challenges with Next-Generation Sequencing

"Hematological malignancies are complex, heterogeneous disorders involving multiple recurrent somatic and germline mutations. For acute hematological malignancies, early diagnosis and personalized disease management remain serious challenges. Moreover, there is a growing need for reliable and timely detection of minimal residual disease (MRD) to improve overall clinical management for patients. Genomic biomarkers can provide valuable information to support these needs; however, current biomarker testing algorithms can involve multiple different modalities—often requiring laborious serial processes and time-consuming workflows. These challenges are further exacerbated by the growing number of biomarkers associated with hematological malignancies.

In recent years, next-generation sequencing (NGS) has emerged as a powerful tool for biomarker testing, owing its ability to rapidly and simultaneously interrogate multiple genomic aberrations from a single sample. This FREE webinar for laboratory leaders, with follow-up Q&A, will demonstrate how this technology can now be easily implemented, making it practical for in-house laboratories to quickly generate comprehensive molecular reports for routine clinical care."

Webinar: Leveraging IT for Your Laboratory Outreach Strategy During the COVID-19 Pandemic

"The COVID-19 pandemic has presented unique challenges across the healthcare industry, leading labs to innovate and expand to meet testing needs. COVID-19 also now calls for labs like yours to implement robust outreach to organizations which find themselves in need of COVID testing. At the same time, your lab also should prepare by increasing its order intake capability with expedited connectivity, so as not to overload IT staff.

In this tough healthcare environment, it’s no longer enough to just connect to your clients as their expectation has become that patients will have a problem-free lab experience, from specimen collection to the receipt of the bill. EMRs are not sophisticated regarding lab ordering and resulting. COVID test results now must be directly reported to government agencies, and in some cases, also to employers. Labs that can fill that gap are the ones physicians want to use, and an effective outreach program can ensure your lab performs as a profit center.

Addressing and simplifying the connectivity challenges presented by COVID-19 ordering, testing, results, and reporting can position your laboratory as the premiere partner for hospitals and physicians during this crisis. Attend this FREE webinar with follow-up Q&A, and learn how your lab can implement the IT solutions it needs to simplify the outreach process and increase market share."

Webinar: Accelerating Lab Order Connectivity for Measurable ROI: Support for Multi-Lab Networks

"Provider silos of the previous decades are giving way to integrated health networks where various providers serve single and sometimes multiple entities. As independent laboratories, hospitals, and health systems enhance their network of providers—including numerous clinical laboratory and anatomic pathology practice partners, or M&A activities—directors and managers must embrace moving from a disjointed data infrastructure system to value-added connectivity.

Connecting multiple order sources, such as physician EMRs or other laboratories and their LIS, into a laboratory network has become a new operational imperative. The core of this call to action is better test routing and sharing and, even more importantly, accelerating clean lab service orders from all order sources. This aims to improve turnaround time, especially in STAT and other urgent situations, improve physician and patient satisfaction, and ensure timely reimbursement for testing.

Where traditional clinical laboratory operations fall short of these types of advanced connectivity goals, the effects are profound, ranging from delays in patient testing on the front end to rejected claims for reimbursement on the back end.

Webinar: Pre-Analytical Improvements for the Sake of Analytical Nirvana

"The Internet of Things (IoT) has established a new system of quality monitoring for lab specimen pickup and drop boxes. This is important as preanalytical errors, supply chain weaknesses, and areas of waste are costly to clinical laboratories.

For example, between 10% and 30% of lab boxes are unknowingly empty when lab couriers make their appointed rounds. The unnecessary costs of nonproductive stops multiply. In addition, little data is known about the time that a lab test specimen spends in hold and in transit, which make up much of the time spent in the pre-analytical phase. Such unknowns introduce variability in sample quality and can compromise specimen integrity.

As part of our ongoing commitment to quality in clinical laboratory testing, Dark Daily will host a new webinar that will be of interest to clinical laboratory leaders pursuing sample/specimen integrity assurance and courier efficiency."

Webinar: Practical and Effective Solutions to Achieve Diagnostic and Antibiotic Stewardship

"In September 2021, a CDC report found that hospital-acquired infections have increased significantly in 2020 after years of steady decline. Standard infection prevention practices have been impacted by staffing shortages and chaotic work environments, which has subsequently created an environment that is susceptible for diagnostic errors. These factors indicate a troubling trend working against antimicrobial and diagnostic stewardship efforts.

As a result, hospital and healthcare system leaders are re-focusing their attention on patient safety and quality outcomes—and trying to solve the problems of blood culture contamination, which can lead to a misdiagnosis of sepsis. With those goals in mind, a new webinar from Dark Daily will focus on practical and effective solutions designed to reduce the risk of antibiotic-related infections, antimicrobial resistance, and false-positive blood cultures.

Featuring a case study and live Q&A, the webinar will review the quality improvement (QI) project of a 425-bed academic medical center. We will examine the impact of a 90% reduction in blood culture contamination rates and the direct effect on antimicrobial stewardship efforts which resulted in a 31% reduction in vancomycin days of therapy (DOT)."

Webinar: Leverage AI to Protect the Integrity of Your Laboratory’s Revenue Cycle

"Invisible revenue cycle compliance and performance threats are the largest risks to a healthcare organization’s financial integrity.
