  • QA Manager for Specialty Testing and Supervisor, Special Coagulation and Special Hematology, New York Presbyterian Hospital
      Donna is Quality Assurance (QA) Manager for Specialty Testing and Supervisor, Special Coagulation and Special Hematology at New York Presbyterian Hospital- Columbia in New York City. She has 34 years clinical laboratory experience, 6 years industry clinical trial experience, including PhD work on Standardization of Laboratory Testing (all but dissertation). Donna has written several book chapters, many publications and presented many coagulation lectures to diverse audiences at all levels of expertise. She is adjunct professor at York College and Rutgers University. Donna presently serves on the Executive Committee of the North American Specialized Coagulation Laboratory Association (NASCOLA) as a Secretary, Publication Committee and Pre-Curriculum Committee for the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), and the Expert Committee for Hematology for the Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI). She is also a member of International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), International Society for Laboratory Hematology (ISLH) and ASCP.


    This session will look at the common issues that can impact quality in the coagulation laboratory and result outcomes.  Implementing a good quality management system and being able to conduct a root cause analysis can not only solve problems, but can help to establish protocols that will prevent them in the future. Information will be presented in a case study format to highlight real-life case scenarios and how laboratories can handle and prevent future issues to ensure they can optimize their coagulation testing and patient care.


    • Identify solutions in areas of coagulation that can be enhanced by implementing good laboratory practices and standard operating procedures
    • Analyze real-life case studies and how to troubleshoot testing to determine root cause and steps to prevent reoccurrence.
    • Enhance general knowledge of coagulation standards and methods
