CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Atlas Medical today announced the laboratory leadership topics of its Benefactor Session and Master Session presentations at the 20th Annual Executive War College (EWC) conference to be held at the Sheraton New Orleans, May 5-6, 2015 in New Orleans, LA.
The healthcare industry commonly accepts that lab data makes up more than 70% of patients’ clinical records. As a Benefactor sponsor of EWC for more than 10 years, the Company kicks off the first conference day with a Benefactor Session, held on Tuesday, May 5 at 7:00 a.m. CT, entitled “Beyond Tactics – Strategic Labs Survive and Thrive. Learn How with Coordinated Diagnostics,” delivered by Robert Gregory, ATLAS Chief Business Officer. Mr. Gregory will discuss with lab leaders how to do more than just deliver lab results to their physician customers and community, and instead, thrive by adopting the new model for the practice of diagnostics across the healthcare continuum, Coordinated Diagnostics. Attendees will learn how to unlock substantial new value in their diagnostics operations by evolving existing systems, workflow and processes.
Immediately following the ATLAS Benefactor session, the Company continues its thought leadership in ATLAS’ Master Session, entitled “How Lab Innovators Are Improving Patient Outcomes and Reducing Costs by Converting Lab Information into Actionable Intelligence,” held on Tuesday, May 5 at 8:00 a.m. CT. During this must-attend Master Session, Rob Atlas, Atlas Medical President & CEO, along with special guest speaker Donald Lystad, LIS Director for North Shore – LIJ Health System, will take the audience through real-world scenarios that demonstrate why lab leaders are turning to Actionable Intelligence as a way to convert the “powerful nature” of patient-centric lab data into information and knowledge that support targeted actions and informed decision-making in order to better address the needs of the individual patient, the community population and other participants in the continuum of care.
“ATLAS has been an EWC Benefactor Sponsor for over 10 consecutive years because we believe the annual event presents an excellent opportunity for laboratory leaders to meet with peers, discuss industry trends and business challenges, and exchange a depth of knowledge and expertise with technology, industry and other healthcare leaders,” says Mr. Atlas. He continues, “We also believe labs can, and should, lead the charge for better care coordination with clinicians and healthcare providers in support of Coordinated Diagnostics and Triple Aim goals. Diagnostic providers need to step up and promote the true value of the patient data they hold and work as partners in the diagnostic process to deliver quality patient experiences, improved population health and reduced healthcare costs.”
ATLAS solutions include the Coordinated Diagnostics Platform, which provides a foundation that supports the practice of Coordinated Diagnostics, such as a shared patient-centric record, Utilization Management and Actionable Intelligence.
