How to Turn an Economic Downturn into an Opportunity for Your Clinical or Pathology Laboratory
Let's face it, these are uncertain times fraught with challenges at every turn, and even though laboratory medicine is an essential healthcare service, it's not immune to economic pressures like inflation, continued supply chain disruptions, and labor shortages.
So how can lab managers and CEOs continue to run successful and profitable operations despite the present economic conditions?
They can start by looking for clues from other businesses outside of the healthcare industry. By doing so, they'll quickly realize that innovation and automation are the keys to success, no matter the business.
We invite you to continue reading to see examples of business innovation that will allow your clinical laboratory or pathology group to continue to grow despite these turbulent times.
Understanding the Importance of Real-Time Analytics in a Modern Laboratory
We all know that pathology groups and clinical laboratories collect a mountain of data daily. From patient demographics to test results and everything in between, data is collected as specimens are accessioned and processed, and lab reports are generated and distributed.
Having the data is one thing, but having easy real-time access to it in the form of dashboard widgets and putting the data to work for your laboratory is something entirely different.
Real-time data analytics has gained importance with the rise of modern and full-featured LIS systems, and labs across all testing disciplines are using the insights gained from this internal data to make more informed decisions and improve lab operations.
