On-Demand Webinar

In recent years, laboratory stewardship has emerged as a strategy to assure quality in laboratory medicine with the goal of providing the right test for the right patient at the right time. Laboratory testing is now the single highest-volume medical activity performed in the U.S., with around 14 billion tests conducted each year (cdc.gov).

Health systems know that existing laboratory stewardship programs must be supported by data, and many have implemented test utilization or laboratory stewardship programs to detect data patterns. These programs use laboratory data to guide clinical decision-making for both individual patients and at a population health level.

Watch the webinar on-demand to learn how the most effective lab stewardship programs go beyond data analysis and extend into continual improvement and cultural adaptation. In this video, experts from Quest Diagnostics and hc1 will share their lab stewardship strategies with hospitals and health systems including:

  • 4 elements of an effective laboratory stewardship program
  • Key criteria when building a laboratory stewardship committee
  • How to identify low impact versus high impact interventions
  • 3 ways lab stewardship solutions improve patient care and outcomes
