Executive War College 2010 to Focus on Economy, Health Care Reform, and Information Technology

With several mergers & acquisitions announced in recent weeks there is good news for those planning to attend the upcoming 15th Annual Executive War College. Laboratory Executives will learn from highly experienced professionals while gaining a wealth of operational knowledge, proven management strategies, and real world best practices.

(February 26, 2010) — The Dark Report, a leading source of practical information for laboratory professionals, announces the 15th Annual Executive War College on Laboratory and Pathology Management is scheduled for April 27-28 at the Sheraton New Orleans, with a bonus day of intensive workshops April 30.

This conference, which is co-sponsored by Sunquest, Xifin, Atlas Medical, Ortho-Clinical Diagnostic, BioImagene, and Siemens, brings together the lab industry’s leading experts to present the latest strategies, best practices and technological innovations to help laboratory professionals improve their operations, grow their bottom line, and prepare for the future.

“This program brings the leading lab industry experts together to discuss strategies on how labs can be more successful in the coming year,” says founder Robert Michel. “It’s the one must attend lab event that brings the best practices and cutting edge innovators together year after year.”

This year’s program tackles relevant clinical laboratory issues to help pathologists and laboratory managers navigate the uncharted territory of health care reform, transfer scientific discovery to clinical practice, and understand the merging of clinical and information technologies. The Executive War College teaches lab professionals how to turn these challenges into advantages.

The conference kicks off with presentations by Robert Michel, editor-in-chief and Executive War College founder on April 27th. The conference then continues over two and a half days and includes over 50 industry experts, including Santé Consulting President Rich Cornell, who will discuss trends in pathology compensation and 4Medica CEO Ravi Sharma, who will explain how laboratories can insure “meaningful use” from their LIS-EMR.

The War College is packed with wall-to-wall sessions that offer participants insider insight in pathologist compensation, a look at what labs are doing to remain profitable beneath the specter of unprecedented health care reform, and other contemporary challenges facing clinical lab professionals today.

For 15 years, the Executive War College has provided clinical lab professionals with the premier educational and networking opportunities in the industry. Newcomers and War College veterans are encouraged to sign up now if they want to separate their laboratory from the competition.
