A Practical Guide to Informatics System Design and Development for the Small to Mid-Sized Lab: Best Practices for Implementing & Managing a Cost-Effective System on Limited Financial and IT Resources
NEW G2 Intelligence Webinar presented by
Dr. Gary A. Letts of Corium Diagnostics.
How do you design and implement an efficient, cost-effective informatics system for your lab if you don’t have millions to spend on costly systems design and development?
|Presenter:||Dr. Gary A. Letts|
|MD, FCAP, President, Corium Diagnostics|
Developing an Informatics System can be an overwhelming … and costly venture if you don’t have the right insight and knowledge.
What steps do you take first? What sources and staffing do you need? What are the challenges and pitfalls, choices and options as you move more deeply into informatics … or perhaps just take your first steps?
Join industry leader Gary A. Letts, pathologist and president of a lab that designed and implemented its own informatics system for a special workshop that will give you practical guidance and hard-learned lessons that start-ups and small to mid-sized labs need to harness the power of informatics to help improve workflows, increase efficiencies and reduce costs.
This 90-minute webinar takes a deep look at how to avoid costly mistakes when you have limited resources and limited expertise designing and implementing complex IT systems.
Here is just a sample of what this webinar will do for you:
- Dispel myths about informatics and show you how you may already be incorporating informatics into your practice/lab operations
- Show you how you can utilize low-cost applications and software to use data to improve your operations or evaluate effectiveness of existing systems and needs
- Tell you what you need to know when you decide to purchase more complex systems so you ask the right questions and get the right systems and resources to meet your growing lab or practice’s needs
- Explain who you need to involve in your development processes to ensure your system will be successful
- Identify core ideas and issues relevant to implementing information technology and informatics in a small to mid-size lab
- Determine how to evaluate information technology and informatics needs essential to improving laboratory operations and maximizing potential of data
- Articulate technology options available to small and mid-sized labs with limited budgets, from do-it-yourself solutions to acquire information systems that fit your workflows and respond to your needs
Make no mistake – efficient, cost-effective informatics capability is absolutely critical to the growth of your lab in today’s highly competitive market. This unique webinar will help you to understand the choices, options, challenges and pitfalls you face as you build your system — and possibly save you tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars by making the right choices NOW.
So don’t delay! This webinar is for you if you are a lab manager, lab administrator, medical director, pathologist, IT professional, practice manager, or leader involved in development and implementation of information systems in small to mid-sized clinical and anatomic pathology labs.
