Inaugural ARUP Laboratories Symposium Offers Strategies to Help Lab Leaders Advance Their Labs' Value in Their Healthcare Systems
SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Northwell Health president and CEO Michael J. Dowling, MSW, will be the keynote speaker for ARUP Laboratories' inaugural Lab Leadership Symposium, "Creating Connections: Advancing Your Lab's Value in the Healthcare System," which will be held Thursday, October 21, 2021, via Zoom.
Dowling will speak on the topic, "Leading Through a Pandemic," and will share how New York's largest health system, with laboratories' support, rapidly ramped up COVID-19 testing, and through its hospitals, emergency departments, urgent care centers, and physicians' offices, treated more patients than any other U.S. health system during the COVID-19 pandemic's first wave. Dowling will discuss how the pandemic has reinforced the need for governments and health systems to prepare for future infectious disease outbreaks. He will talk about the essential role diagnostic laboratories play in identifying viral hotspots early to slow the spread of outbreaks.
Registration for the symposium is free. The first 100 registrants will receive a copy of Dowling's book, "Leading Through a Pandemic: The Inside Story of Humanity, Innovation, and Lessons Learned During the COVID-19 Crisis." Visit ARUP's Lab Leadership Symposium page for an agenda and to register for the half-day event.
As one of the nation's largest reference laboratories, with hospital and health system clients nationwide, ARUP recognizes that the healthcare industry is under more pressure than ever to cut costs and create efficiencies as the pandemic persists, said Andrew Fletcher, MD, MBA, CPE, CHCQM, FCAP, ARUP medical director of Consultative Services. "The need has never been greater for laboratory leaders to increase their visibility and prove the value of their labs to decision makers who face hard choices," he said.
Fletcher and other presenters will equip hospital laboratory administrators and directors, pathologists, lab managers, operations managers, physician advisors, financial managers, and other attendees with strategies they can use to spotlight the lab's pivotal role across not only clinical teams, but operations and case management. In addition to Dowling's address, highlights include the following:
