On June 9, Sunquest and API continued their free virtual series for 2021 with a new webinar entitled: “Business and Clinical Analytics as Key Components of Lab Operations”
Business analytics is a key element in optimizing clinical lab operations. Driven by a variety of software, data mining techniques, and visualizations, such processes are essential to laboratory quality and efficiency. In this one-hour presentation, Dr. Tuthill, presented the philosophy behind analytics development as well as several case studies in which analytics is deployed in the Henry Ford Health System laboratories. He also addressed in-house development of analytic tools as well as the role vendor provided solutions.
Lab leaders need to consider or understand:
- Where to start, what to measure
- The role of in-house analytics tools, today and in the future
- Importance and awareness of laboratory analytics throughout the care continuum
Woven through the discussion: an emphasis on ways to measure the benefits of the software as well as deployment challenges.
