AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Remarkable things are happening as the nation’s medical laboratories and anatomic pathology groups answer the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for ever-greater numbers of SARS-CoV-2 tests. Despite acute shortages of essential test kits and supplies, many labs are adding COVID-19 test capacity.
This is one finding from the opening sessions of the 2020 Virtual Executive War College on Laboratory Management, which started August 4 and is delivering 3 or weekly sessions over the next 10 weeks. All sessions are available on demand. Lab managers and pathologists can still register to participate.
Upcoming are two essential presentations by nationally recognized experts on healthcare strategy and managed care trends involving clinical laboratory and pathology testing services:
Wed., Aug. 19, 1 PM-2 PM EDT
Strategic Directions for Healthcare and Health Insurers: What’s Coming Next, How Care Delivery is Changing, and New Opportunities for Clinical Labs to Add Value – BG Porter, CEO, Accumen; Kristine Bordenave, MD, Principal, KKBordenave Consulting and formerly Chief Innovation Officer, Humana.
Tues., Aug. 25, 1 PM-2 PM EDT
Rising to the COVID-19 Challenge: How the Atrium Health Lab Team Speedily Brought Up SARS-CoV-2 Testing, Is Dealing with the Inadequate Delivery of Lab Supplies, and Managing Lab Staff Across All Testing Sites – Modena Henderson, Vice President, Laboratory; John Longshore, PhD, Director of Molecular Pathology; Linda Mirkes, Assistant Vice President, Core Laboratory and Integration; all from Atrium Health.
Strong attendance at the first sessions of the Virtual Executive War College demonstrate first that the speakers, content, and information are of immediate value to lab leaders throughout the U.S. and second, that there is support for the virtual conference concept. Currently, 400+ registrants participate in the Virtual Executive War College, with new registrations daily. The full line-up of sessions is available on-demand, 24/7.
Proving equally valuable to lab leaders and IVD marketing professionals attending the virtual event is the ability to network and interact with attendees. Executive War College’s digital platform makes it possible for any attendee to message any other attendee, invite a group of attendees to a group chat or Zoom session, or organize Zoom get-togethers on specific topics such as solving supply chain problems, getting paid for COVID-19 tests, and finding medical technologists to support expansion of SARS-CoV-2 testing.
