Sunquest & API - New Webinar Series
RESPONDING TO COVID-19: Large Reference Lab Strategy, Logistics and IT
Informatics Virtual Conferences
September 22, 2020 | 1:00pm ET / 10:00am PT
On September 22 at 1:00pm ET, Sunquest and API will continue its free COVID-19 virtual series with a new webinar that focuses on the pandemic from the perspective of a large regional reference lab and large health system lab environment.
The entire clinical lab industry is under scrutiny during this pandemic on multiple counts such as long test-result turnaround times and confusion on the part of consumers about the value and efficacy of lab testing. Part of these problems are due to a continuing onslaught of test samples to regional and national labs and part due to the fragmentation of the lab industry in the U.S. These problems have been exacerbated by the absence of a coherent federal lab policy and set of directives.
