      Is your health system asking more of you to drive down total cost of care, and support physician test ordering and interpretation? Based on a self-reported survey, physicians are uncertain about test ordering 15% of the time, and 8% of the time are uncertain about how to interpret the results.
      Lab professionals are increasingly looked upon to provide diagnostic guidance to support clinical decision making. Further, the lab’s ability to demonstrate measurable impact on safety, quality, and cost reduction is critical in today’s environment.
      Your organization’s senior leadership is expecting more value to be provided from the laboratory. In a recent survey, 71% of health system executives believe the lab can play a role in reducing the time to diagnosis. However, lab expertise and data is often not fully leveraged to this end.
      There is huge opportunity for labs to harness the power of the data they already possess – and directly impact speed, efficiency, and quality of health care delivery in a variety of care settings. Effectively leveraging lab data through clinical decision support is a powerful tool to scale diagnostic expertise and directly impact care beyond the four walls of your laboratory.
      In this webinar we will:
      • Review the key challenges the laboratory industry is facing which is driving the need for improved diagnostic guidance solutions
      • Encourage a common language and broader participation of the laboratory in the clinical decision making process
      • Provide specific examples and use cases of effective clinical decision support implementations
      • Foster selection of high-impact projects to effectively target clinical variability and drive best practice
      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.
