Highlights from the Executive War College

May 2, 2022

The Executive War College Conference on Laboratory & Pathology Management kicked back into action last week in New Orleans; according to reports from the Dark Report sponsors, the meeting had the largest attendance since 2018. 

The meeting hosted by Robert Michel and his Dark Report organization includes multiple education sessions and sponsored offerings that include information on how labs can adopt new technologies and solutions. The meeting has been a robust reintroduction of in-person communication and collaboration for clinical lab professionals.

Highlights of the education sessions include:

  • New tools to save time and labor costs while enhancing efficacy.
  • Focus on the adoption of lab tools and platforms with Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine learning (ML).
  • The Great Resignation – and what healthcare systems and laboratories can do to recruit new talent and ideas around programs to enhance current staff support and job enhancements.
  • New technologies: POCT tools that reduce turn-around-time (TAT) and deliver faster test results.
  • Recognition of care delivery outside of the traditional lab environment.
  • Direct-to-patient testing strategies – and how do labs engage these new movements.
  • Top areas that laboratories overlook for their audits.

It was announced that the 2023 Executive War College meeting will be back in New Orleans, April 25-26, 2023, at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans.
