Denise Uettwiller-Geiger, PhD, DLM (ASCP), Clinical Chemist and Director of Clinical Trials, John T. Mather Memorial Hospital, Port Jefferson, NY

The Laboratory Value Pyramid is a useful model for moving clinical laboratories from their current state to a best-of-class laboratory performer. This session provides a real-world perspective on how one laboratory team is using the Laboratory Value Pyramid as their blueprint and guide to support the lab’s transition from a volume-based operational model to an added-value-based model which is essential for success in the future.

Objectives:

  • Discuss practical insights on how to engage the laboratory team to understand the need for change in response to changing healthcare requirements.
  • Describe lessons learned in mapping the Laboratory Value Pyramid to the lab’s existing practices.
  • Devise the optimal future state to help ensure success as a laboratory that adds value and contributes to improved patient outcomes.

This session provides 1 contact hour through P.A.C.E.® and the state of Florida.
