Reducing Complexity and Increasing the Value of Molecular VL, STI, and Transplant Testing with Middleware

  • Senior Manager, Solutions Design Team for the Americas
      I've been working both as an individual contributor and leader in the healthcare space for my entire career, focusing on the best use of clinical/scientific evidence, matched with insights that challenge the status quo. I've been a successful product manager/director in medical diagnostics and pharma. I really enjoy teaching, coaching and mentoring as I find it extremely satisfying. I am skilled at the macro and the micro-level in product management, performance problem solving, educating/motivating and marketing.

      I've been fortunate enough to be given some difficult problems to solve and I use a variety of tools and techniques to make them successful. I am extremely focused on the value I bring as a front-line marketer and work to bring tools, insights, and value in all my activities and programs focused on physicians, other allied health professionals, and administration. I work on large contracting issues, create curricula (and develop training myself in Articulate(R)Storyline), lead benchmarking studies with large prospects, and recruit and engage health professionals to become champions.

      I really enjoy what I do and have a broad experience set that has allowed me to flourish.

       MA in Corporate and Public Communications / BS in Laboratory Science (Biology/Chemistry)
       PMP Certified (PMI Institute)
       CPHQ (NAHQ)
       Skilled inline marketing, product management, sales management, channel management, and change management, as well as policy, training, and facilitation work, both traditional and Internet. Strong work history as both full-time employee and in consulting roles.

    TIME:  10:00am PST

    Genomics, personalized medicine and cost stewardship are just a few of the forces behind the need for better management of discrete testing information. This presentation will focus on a brief history of computing in the clinical laboratory, progress through some key middleware terms to know and understand, discuss some practical applications in the molecular laboratory and conclude with a brief list of best-in-class attributes to consider as you contemplate adding this technology to your busy molecular laboratory. Terms such as AutoVerification, Reflex Testing and Rules Validation will be covered, as well as an introduction to key concepts contained in CLSI support documents AUTO010-A and AUTO08A.


    Learning Objectives:

    • At the end of the presentation the participant should be able to classify the role of middleware in the context of LIS and EHR data sharing and reporting.
    • At the end of the presentation the learner should be able to compare and contrast the functional benefits of adding middleware to their busy molecular laboratory.
    • At the end of the presentation: the learner should be able to identify and define a basic validation plan to satisfy local and regional requirements including CLSI guidance.


    Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.


    LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this webinar, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit once you have viewed the webinar in its entirety.
