  • Group CEO, Labexa Group, France; CEO & Founder, Gontard & Cie, Switzerland
      Patrick Gontard possesses more than 25 years of medical industry experience, in a variety of senior leadership roles across laboratories, hospitals, and professional medical associations.
      Known as a subject matter expert on the topic of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), Mr. Gontard has developed and implemented a TCO model, which has been applied in laboratory settings to become an evidence based, real life management tool for calculating and controlling costs related to laboratory and hospital operational efficiency.
      Responsible for restructuring and management, including commercial and scientific leadership in various laboratories throughout Europe and the Middle East, Mr. Gontard's TCO methodology has helped to uncover and quantify hidden or indirect costs and deliver operational efficiencies and improvements in profitability.
      Patrick has perfected his Total Cost of Ownership model over the years, working for organizations such as Viollier the second largest Swiss lab group, Integrated Diagnostics in Egypt, Citilab the second largest lab group in Russia, and currently is the lab CEO at Exalab in France.

    As healthcare trends push cost-pressures onto hospital systems, laboratories are faced with intensifying budget constraints while managing an ever-increasing demand for higher quality.  Properly managing these competing pressures is critical to the sustainability of any lab and requires a new approach to reducing operational costs, without sacrificing quality.  

    Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is a concept that can help laboratories and hospitals identify factors that drive increased costs, with the goal of identifying the source of operational inefficiencies throughout your laboratory operations and improving productivity. 

    The impact of direct and indirect costs on a laboratory’s budget can be significant, and proper management of these costs is crucial to making operational improvements.  By taking a holistic approach to managing your lab operations, you can have a dramatic impact on the performance of your lab and in turn deliver greater value to your healthcare organization. 

    In this webinar you will be introduced to the Total Cost of Ownership methodology, learn how to leverage TCO to improve your laboratory’s performance, review a robust case study performed by an independent laboratory, and explore the impact of these improvements.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Define the characteristics of a successful lab 
    • How to focus on evidence-based laboratory management improvements to maximize operational efficiency
    • How to maximize your lab's capabilities and influence on pre-analytics, peri-analytics, and post-analytics
