Watch the Webinar: Applying Informatics to Improve Laboratory Stewardship

This webinar from February 7, 2017, by Dr. Patrick Mathias is the first of three in the Laboratory Stewardship series sponsored by Orchard Software in collaboration with Seattle Children’s Hospital. It shares guidance on informatics approaches to improve laboratory utilization, and the discussion includes proven approaches to analyzing laboratory data to better understand utilization patterns, strategies for engaging clinical partners, and how laboratory information systems can impact laboratory workflow to improve utilization. The webinar also offers EHR interventions that can help sustain improved laboratory utilization.

Following the webinar, you will be able to:

  • Identify variables that provide actionable information when analyzing laboratory utilization data
  • Differentiate scenarios in which different types of stakeholder engagement are most effective
  • Evaluate the feasibility of modifying your information systems to optimize laboratory ordering
