Abstract
Date:  November 18, 2021
Time: 11:00am (PST),  2:00pm (EST)
 
An important lesson learned from the COVID-19 pandemic is how critical the microbiology laboratory is to ensuring hospitals have surge testing capabilities. At the same time, an increased focus on antimicrobial resistance and rapid detection of resistant organisms has created a need for faster turnaround times while adding layers of complexity. Bottom line: lab resources are increasingly strained. In addition, with microbiology experts retiring and fewer graduates entering the field, labs have struggled to attract and retain the necessary talent to support their increasing volumes. During this webinar you will learn how total lab automation and change management can help improve your laboratory capacity, impact patient management and deliver on your business case.
 
Learning Objectives
  • Discuss the critical role of microbiology laboratory testing, and surge testing capabilities for crisis management.
  • Describe how automated technologies and change management can improve laboratory capacity and productivity.
  • llustrate how improvements in laboratory operational efficiency benefit turnaround time for patient results.
 
 
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
