An undeniable trend across the globe today is increased connectivity, particularly through the use of digital technologies such as the electronic devices that allow us to be linked to each other, our workplaces, and a plethora of information sources. The global pandemic has accelerated the acceptance of many of these technologies—think telemedicine, virtual conferences, and remote control of equipment. In life science research, diagnostic, and clinical labs, the uptake of digital connectivity has been proceeding cautiously for a number of years, but has recently also been impacted by pandemic-related pressures. These and other industries have much to gain from connected platforms and digital services, and could take advantage of lessons learned from other pioneering industries. In the same way that the health care sector has seen the benefits of embracing telemedicine, laboratories of all stripes are recognizing the advantages of being able to maximize the use of their equipment, monitor usage, minimize downtime, and use predictive maintenance to reduce equipment failures. Other pluses include remote staff training and customer support and the availability of analytics to track equipment use and productivity.
This webinar will take a hard look at the lab digitalization landscape, highlighting a range of perspectives—from end-users to technology developers.
During the webinar, the speakers will:
- Define digitalization and show how it can be used to eliminate silos of disconnected data and harness the wealth of data generated by research, diagnostic, and clinical workflows
- Address common concerns including standardization, compatibility, and privacy
- Outline pitfalls and benefits—for lab users, managers, and ultimately patients
- Answer your questions live during the broadcast.
This webinar will last for approximately 60 minutes.
