Data generated from medical laboratory results is a valuable resource of information for clinical decision making. In addition, laboratories can harness the power of laboratory data to optimize processes that advance the laboratory. Finally, laboratory data can be used to advocate for resources and support changes aimed to improve healthcare delivery.
Although the importance of data is clear, accessing and using data can be complex, especially for the laboratorian without a degree in computer science. The SYCL Workshop will provide tools for attendees of all backgrounds to develop the critical skills needed to connect clinical data and laboratory results with the goal of guiding decision making.
One important skill set that will be highlighted in the session is how to effectively advocate for the laboratory using the technologies available while having zero programming skills. We also aim to educate attendees on the basics of how clinical databases are structured, and how to navigate extracting relevant data to use in clinical and quality improvement projects. Lastly, attendees will participate in engaging activities while learning how to successfully carry out a laboratory information system change.
The workshop will provide attendees with skills and real-world examples of how to better navigate the world of data to successfully guide their laboratories.
This workshop is held in connection with the 2022 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo.
