February 2023 Newsletter: Optimizing Lab Operations to Prevent Burnout and Staff Shortages
If you’re a pathologist, chances are you’ve felt burnout at some point during your career. In fact, there’s a really good chance that burnout is affecting you today. That's according to a poll conducted by the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP) and published by the American Journal of Clinical Pathology.
Unfortunately, that's not surprising. Anxiety and stress among pathologists are on the rise as they collectively deal with a rise in cases, a lack of qualified personnel to share the workload, and a tightening of internal budgets.
So what can be done?
At LigoLab we believe that adding automation to anatomic pathology workflows and processes is the answer to preventing stress and burnout in the laboratory and we plan to demonstrate this when we host a webinar at the end of March.
We'll have more webinar details to share soon. In the meantime, please save the date below.

The plain truth is the majority of LIS users are unhappy or unsatisfied with their LISs. Common problems like insufficient functionality and inefficient manual workflows create barriers that frustrate staff and threaten the overall livelihood of the business.
These are problems that come with legacy systems that are rigid and outdated. Fortunately, not all LISs are created equally, and modern LIS systems excel where legacy systems can't in terms of performance, reliability, and scalability.
We invite you to check out the following resources and compare your current system with what a modern LIS system can offer.
Also, if a software implementation is on your horizon, here's another good resource put together recently with the help of Clinical Lab Products. It's a list of 7 best practices to follow for a successful LIS install.
