How to Optimize Laboratory Operations to Beat Pathologist Burnout & Combat Staffing Shortages
Pathology plays a vital role in medical decision-making, accounting for 70-80% of all clinical decisions, while only consuming 4-7% of a typical health system's budget. However, despite its crucial role, many pathologists in the industry are facing burnout due to ever-increasing caseloads and financial strains caused by a lack of qualified laboratory personnel to manage the bench and mostly manual workflows.
As a pathologist, or laboratory operator you know firsthand the consequences of these two issues: the potential for increased medical errors, rising labor costs, and a lack of job satisfaction.
