Lecture summary

How to Make Better Decisions: Combining Analytics, Machine Learning, and Decision Support to Improve the Laboratory's Value

Data analytics, clinical data science and Clinical Decision Support (CDS) are rapidly becoming essential parts of the laboratory toolbox. This presentation will demonstrate how labs are harnessing the power of these tools to transform their operations, improve laboratory utilization, reduce costs, and enhance patient care. First, the presentation will explore the key foundational concepts that underlie the application of decision support throughout the laboratory testing process. Then it will be demonstrated how labs are combining the power of analytics and decision support to drive change and improve outcomes. Further, it will be shown how advanced techniques such as machine learning are a natural fit for making sense of the complexity of patient laboratory testing and developing algorithms that improve patient care. Practical approaches for the integration of machine learning and other advanced tools into clinical laboratory workflows will be detailed.
