Future of Pathology Informatics and the LIS

This half-day workshop is an extension of the API-Strategic Summit that was held June 7-8, 2012, in Pittsburgh. The work product of that conference is white paper entitled "Road Map to a Bright Future for Pathology Informatics and the Laboratory Information Systems" that is currently being drafted.  The goal of this workshop, consisting of speakers as outlines below, and group discussion, will be to refine and extend the conclusions of this white paper. A second initiative that has arisen out of the Strategic Summit is a project driven by API, and industry underwriters to fund two independent consultants to develop a document outlining "LIS scope and Functionality". The vision is that this document, together with the white paper will provide detailed information to help laboratories justify current and future LIS operations at the highest functional level. Both the white paper and LIS scope and function document will addressed in the second half of the session.
