API-Sunquest Webinar Series January 2017 to May 2017
The Association for Pathology Informatics (API) and Sunquest Information Systems are pleased to announce the new API-Sunquest webinar series for January 2017 to May 2017. We invite you to register for the first webinar in our joint series. The webinar titled, “The Shifting Value Equation Between Hospital Labs and Reference Labs”, will be held on Thursday, January 26, 1:00 p.m. ET, and will be presented by presented by Brian Jackson, VP and CMIO, at ARUP Laboratories.
Description: Which tests are performed in which settings: point of care, hospital lab, or reference lab? The answer in many cases is likely to change as healthcare moves to value-based payment models. This presentation will describe the value stream of testing and draw analogies to the computer hardware sector in order to suggest likely trends.

Clinical Informatics Certification
The American Board of Pathology is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for subspecialty certification in Clinical Informatics. The link to the application is posted on our website home page at www.abpath.org. Because this is a new ABMS/Am Board of Pathology subspecialty, there is a five year period of qualification by practice/experience. It is anticipated that in 2018 and thereafter, pathologists will only qualify for certification if they complete an ACGME accredited fellowship program in clinical informatics.
