    • Associate Professor of Pathology at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center (CSMC) and University of California Los Angeles Hospital
        Oksana Volod, MD is Associate Professor of Pathology at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center (CSMC) and University of California Los Angeles Hospital in Los Angeles, CA. She is responsible for the coagulation laboratory and works extensively across multiple departments to ensure best patient testing practices. Her clinical research interests include viscoelastic test utilization for personalized treatment of complex coagulopathies and development of optimal anticoagulation strategies for patients on mechanical circulatory support devices (MCS). In addition, she is a member of the Coagulation Resource Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP). Prior to her current position, she performed her residency in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology, along with a fellowship in hematopathology and coagulation at CSMC. She was also a visiting fellow in coagulation at the Royal Free Hospital in London, UK and previously earned her MD at the Uzhgorod State University in Ukraine.


      Rapid access to high quality comprehensive coagulation test results is critical to patient care.  In an environment where clinical laboratories constantly experience price and labor pressure, labs are positioned to change the landscape and leverage their roles as key members of the clinical care team by keeping testing in house.  Drs. Herriman and Volod will share actionable strategies for labs to lead their healthcare networks to drive successful patient outcomes.

      Learning objectives:

      1. Define current state of the clinical laboratory value market.
      2. Illustrate implications of changes in the laboratory testing landscape for providers and laboratorians.
      3. Demonstrate opportunities for overall patient cost savings using high value routine and specialty coagulation assays
