Free Webinar: “The Laboratory Advisory Council: A Tool for Success”

The Laboratory Advisory Council:  A Tool For Success
Monday, May 11, 2015

11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon EDT


Health system laboratories and pathology groups are often challenged to meet system-mandated cost reduction or process improvement objectives.  A laboratory advisory council (LAC) can help face that challenge by turning what can be a difficult, factional process into one where all entities work together to understand and achieve common goals.  This webinar will describe the essential components of an LAC and how it can be used to drive project success.

Learning Objectives:
By the end of the webinar, participants will understand:

  • The vital framework an LAC provides for laboratories and pathology groups to collaborate to meet health system directives.
  • The fundamental elements of an effective LAC.
  • How a group of health system laboratories used their LAC to successfully navigate a complex microbiology consolidation.
