This webinar will discuss the required infrastructure needed to successfully implement data analytics for laboratory medicine applications. How is data typically stored and accessed in a healthcare environment? How does the LIS fit into the larger infrastructure of health information technology? How do you build the awareness of the local environment, access to data, and resources that you need to perform analytics? What skillsets and technology resources are needed?

Drs. Mathias, and Obstfeld will provide their perspectives on key concepts for successfully implementing data analytics for laboratory medicine. These presentations will be followed by an open panel discussion moderated by Dr. Haymond.


This activity is designed for physicians, lab supervisors, lab directors (and/or assistant directors), lab managers (supervisory and/or non-supervisory), medical technologists, point-of-care coordinators, fellows, residents, in-training individuals, and other laboratory professionals overseeing/conducting within this topic.


At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how laboratory information systems fit into a broader healthcare setting
  • Explain the lifecycle of data in the healthcare environment
  • Discuss the technical and staffing resource requirements to support downstream data analytics
  • Summarize the steps required to implement a data infrastructure to apply data analytics
