Middleware: Managing Workflow in a Digital World

Is your clinical laboratory facing increased workloads and complicated workflows? Extensive documentation requirements affecting QC? Need to bridge talent gaps? In this webinar, your peers from El Camino Hospital will share how they addressed those challenges through IT middleware solutions.

El Camino Hospital had a goal to standardize evaluation of results and continuously improve QC practices so their clinical laboratory scientists could respond to conditions in real time and take appropriate action. In this webinar, El Camino Hospital’s chemistry lead, Kelly Abbott, MT(ASCP), will share how a middleware solution helped them:

  • Optimize laboratory workflow through rules utilization
  • Expand QC practices to address potential issues and monitor result quality
  • Empower staff to meet challenges without the need for IT support
