Abbott Industry Workshops

Mobilizing data to build insights and unlock your laboratory's health potential through business intelligence
August 1, 2017, 7:00AM
Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina, Grand Ballroom Section 6 - Lobby Level

Managing large amounts of data (test results, patient and administrative information) are at the core of laboratory operations. Effective data integration into actionable, valuable insights can challenge laboratory administrators, who must balance resource and costcontainment efforts while delivering quality services and patient-care. The adoption of Business Intelligence (BI) into clinical laboratory practices can provide the means to uncover insights for laboratory operations and quality services. Moreover, digitization and integration of laboratory information can be leveraged into new health care delivery models. BI enables laboratory personnel to make better strategic decisions and achieve a healthier, more efficient laboratory and network.

Building Healthier Hospitals through world class quality and Six Sigma optimization with innovative instrumentation and informatics solutions
August 1, 2017, 6:00pM

MARRIOTT MARQUIS SAN DIEGO MARINA, GRAND BALLROOM SECTION 6 - LOBBY LEVEL

As laboratories continue to adjust to increasing cost pressures, expectations to deliver high-quality results at the right time remains crucial. Personnel reductions and short-term costcutting measures are not sustainable long-term solutions and can ultimately lead to lower test quality, delays in patient care, and higher operating expenses. This workshop will describe how Six Sigma performance, along with innovative technology and informatics, can help maximize lab productivity, provide world-class quality, and safely minimize expenditures. It will also address sustainability of Six Sigma performance across instrument platforms, including ARCHITECT and Alinity* systems, providing long-term solutions that help labs adjust to increasing health care and economic pressures.

*Available in select markets. Not commercially available in the U.S.

Leveraging clinical decision solutions to standardize clinical SPEAKERS protocols and enhance clinician test interpretation, to achieve Healthier Hospitals
August 2, 2017, 7:00AM

MARRIOTT MARQUIS SAN DIEGO MARINA, GRAND BALLROOM SECTION 6 - LOBBY LEVEL

Clinical decision support complements hospital and laboratory information systems by effectively synthesizing clinical and diagnostic information into actionable clinical protocols that provide patient-care consistency through evidence-based algorithms. Clinical decision support can help reduce errors, transform laboratory operations, reduce cost and improve health care outcomes. This workshop will provide an overview of current approaches to clinical decision support and how to leverage a multidisciplinary team to implement clinical decision support in a health care network. Drawing on use case examples to reinforce the value clinical decision support can bring to labs, and in turn hospitals, for improved care delivery and patient outcomes.
