Register for this live webinar to learn about using laboratory data to improve healthcare delivery and operations. During this hour you will have the opportunity to engage in live Q&A with Drs. Sarah Wheeler and Daniel Holmes. With your registration, you will have access to the recording on demand through October 31, 2023.


The practice of medicine is changing rapidly to include the introduction of automated and algorithmic solutions to clinical and operational challenges. These approaches represent a dramatic improvement over manual paper-based healthcare practices.

In this webinar, Dr. Daniel Holmes will provide examples of data analytics applications in laboratory medicine to demonstrate how laboratory data can be leveraged to improve healthcare delivery and operations. Exploration of data analytic tools, including select applications of machine learning, will be covered to illustrate how they can be utilized to automate manual laboratory processes, develop new quality monitoring and assurance tools, and support clinical/operational decisions. Dr. Holmes will demonstrate how the analysis of laboratory data yields information that is necessary for the evidence-based planning and decision making in the health care system. Moderator Dr. Sarah Wheeler will introduce the topic and facilitate the Q&A with Dr. Holmes.


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:

  • Discuss applications of data analytics, data science and artificial intelligence in contemporary laboratory medicine practice.
  • Identify potential applications of data science/analytics to their laboratory.
