The Association for Pathology Informatics (API) and Sunquest Information Systems will be presenting the third webinar in their current series of seven entitled: Utilizing Informatics to Improve Laboratory Test Selection. Date and time: November 12, 2014, at 1:00 PM ET/10 :00 AM PT. The lecture will be delivered by Jason Baron, M.D., Medical Director, Core Laboratory, Department of Pathology at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Anand Dighe, M.D., Ph.D., Director, Core Laboratory, Department of Pathology at MGH. I have heard Jason and Anand deliver a variant of this lecture and it's very insightful and well worth your time.
Strategic application of laboratory information technology and clinical decision support can improve test utilization, decrease test costs, and enhance diagnostic precision. This session will provide tips about how pathologists and other laboratory professionals can navigate through various technical, political and clinical challenges to providing enhanced clinical decision support for laboratory test selection and test result interpretation. This talk will offer attendees the background information required to take a more active leadership role of their institution's hospital and laboratory information systems and to leverage these systems to improve diagnostic and economic value.
Key points to be discussed in the webinar include:
- Technical and administrative barriers to implementing enhanced clinical decision support for laboratory testing
- Strategic approaches to overcoming these barriers
- Examples to illustrate how broadly available decision support tools can be used to enhance the diagnostic value of tests
