Laboratories continue to face changes and challenges that demand that they work efficiently and economically. Today’s Medical Laboratory Professionals work in an already critically short-staffed profession, dealing with a dwindling number of new graduates that does not offset the number of retiring individuals. This scenario results in labs with overworked employees who may feel burnt out and frustrated. Consequently, when laboratory professionals are forced to work long hours to meet demands, there is an increased opportunity for errors and a potential detrimental impact on patient care.

The speakers will outline specific efficiencies that are created through an integrated LIS that can help alleviate staff shortages, improve staff satisfaction, and boost cost efficiency. The webinar will discuss healthcare trends that are adding to the burden faced by the laboratory profession. Lastly, the presenters will describe an example of a laboratory that successfully leveraged their LIS integration to save a substantial amount of tech time and money.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize trends within the healthcare and laboratory industries that are adding pressure to laboratory professionals’ jobs.
  • Identify the cost of errors and burnout in the laboratory.
  • Share a laboratory case study example that highlights the benefits associated with successful implementation of an integrated LIS.
  • Examine the myriad benefits achieved by implementing an integrated LIS.
