This webinar will share how a medical microbiology lab within the UK’s National Health Service introduced new systems and workflows to improve its efficiency without impacting the quality of its service.
Modern medical microbiology labs have to do more with less: They are tasked with processing more samples and generating more results, in less time than before and with less resources, all without impacting the quality of their output. Without continuous improvement, labs risk failing some or all of these aspects and, more importantly, failing their patients.
Faced with this challenge, the medical microbiology lab at Victoria Hospital of Fife, Scotland, worked in partnership with its suppliers to develop and implement new instrument workflows, new molecular diagnostic assays, and new ways of working to improve its efficiency.
In this webinar, Dr. Mairiead MacLennan of Victoria Hospital will detail how this effort not only made the lab more effective for today, but also provided additional capacity for the future. Dr. MacLennan will also present how the lab achieved this while improving its output and improving patient care.
