THE ROLE OF INFOrMATICS AND BEST PRACTICE SHARING IN PANDEMIC RESPONSE

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, diagnostic testing is critical to diagnosing and containing Covid-19. Health care systems – from the lab to the C-suite – must continue to be vigilant during the unprecedented surge across the diagnosis cycle while facing increased stressors on processes, instruments, inventory and staffing along with possible stress and burnout among their employees from the effort. Learn how laboratories can position themselves to provide value and leadership by implementing integrated solutions in three key areas:

  • Clinical Triage and Care Pathway
  • Lab Surge Response
  • Hospital IT Data Integration
