98% of in-patients will undergo a diagnostic test during a hospital stay.1 With the increased focus on the accuracy of diagnostic test results needed to inform decisions to treat outbreaks, antimicrobial resistance, and hospital acquired infections, optimizing your microbiology lab has never been more important. What does this look like? First, this means standardizing testing in the lab to produce consistent, timely quality results, and scaling the capacity of the lab to handle surges in patient specimen volumes. Next, it’s about accelerating turn-around time for specimen processing, so your lab can support the speed of diagnostic testing needed for clinicians to make the timely decisions required to manage their patients.2,3 During this webinar you will learn how automation, technology and change management can help improve your laboratory productivity and KPIs, impact patient management and deliver on your business case.
- Describe how the combination of automated technologies and change management can improve laboratory capacity and productivity.
- Illustrate how improvements in laboratory operational efficiency benefit turnaround time for patient results.
- Compare the return on investment timelines with lab versus patient metrics.
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
