Meet with health care innovators and discover the hidden potential of your laboratory's data
With the constant pressure to cut budgets and resources within your laboratory, you may be struggling to find a solution. By joining your peers and today's foremost laboratory intelligence experts, you will learn how to decipher your laboratory's abundant data and turn it into the insights that will help resolve your biggest issues and enable you to make better medical decisions.
In the UK, just 30% of the population – those with chronic diseases and other health needs – are drawing 70% of the healthcare costs. Simultaneously, the UK has up to 40% fewer doctors and hospital beds than the rest of Europe. In light of these challenges the National Health Service has instituted a reform initiative requiring strategic plans toward reducing unwarranted variation in clinical quality and efficiency. On April 20th, a group of innovative laboratory leaders from England, Scotland and Wales met for a collaborative day of group discussions and break-out sessions aimed at planning how new uses of constantly evolving technology and data analysis could help address this government reform and ultimately alleviate the combined pressures of chronic disease, growing population and shrinking budgets.
With the highest birth rate among Gulf region nations plus one of the highest global rates of chronic illnesses like diabetes the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is facing severe budget pressures due to healthcare needs. On April 17th and 18th, more than 30 laboratory innovators from across Saudi Arabia came together to discuss these common challenges. At the same time they also addressed new ways to modernize their labs through data and insights in order to accomplish the health reform goals of their country’s National Transformation Program 2020.
More than 150 laboratory and healthcare IT leaders met in Istanbul and Ankara April 11th-13th to learn from Big Data experts and share their concepts for innovative solutions to their country’s biggest health challenges: a need for budget efficiency while maintaining strong care for one of the fastest growing nations in Europe with significant increases in both the 0-14 and 65+ age brackets. From predictive instrument service and avoiding unexpected downtime to expert guidance on analyzing data and improving lab operations, these laboratory innovators held a lively discussion on how best to innovate for the future.
With significant population growth due to new immigration plus an overall aging population – and the testing challenges that both trends represent – laboratory leaders in Hong Kong know they need to innovate to address rapidly changing healthcare needs. This is why a mix of laboratory managers from public hospitals and private labs met on April 6th to exchange their experiences and ideas for managing these changes with technology, data analysis and smart planning.
Thailand is a nation undergoing significant and rapid change in healthcare. With an aging population and a low doctor to patient ratio, Abbott brought together twenty of Thailand’s most innovative laboratory managers to exchange their ideas and experiences – and pioneer a new way of thinking about how the laboratory can help health systems overcome these complex challenges.
Fifteen of Korea's largest and most-prominent laboratories sent their leaders to discover new ways of deciphering their laboratory's data - turning the information they already have into intelligent insights.
The Innovators Exchange features an interactive agenda covering the latest technologies and methods, including informative panel discussions, live question and answer sessions with your peers, and best practice sharing from laboratory experts.
