Looking Back at 2019’s Pearls of Wisdom

December 2019 - Vol. 8 No. 11 - Page #1

As the decade of the “Teens” draws to an end, we are honored to have launched and nurtured MedicalLab Management during this mercurial time in clinical laboratory medicine. Having introduced MLM in the summer of 2012, we are proud to have built the content of this publication into a monthly resource for clinical laboratory management. That said, we are even more proud of the laboratory leaders who have shared their extensive knowledge over the last 8 years, perhaps no more so than in the past year. 2019 was an exciting year for clinical laboratory practice with the light of innovation and technology casting the power of clinical diagnostics in sharp relief.

At MLM, we address the wide range of disciplines that laboratory directors are tasked with managing. These include the logistics and technical workflows essential to modern health care, but also the business side of laboratory practice. With the growth of outreach and networked laboratories, the laboratory can be a powerful business indeed. We agree with the aphorism that great minds think alike, and considering this, we are honored to present this year’s most popular articles (as determined by online views). These represent the wide range of responsibilities that laboratory directors must undertake:

Modern Microbiology: Laboratory Planning and Design

Reducing Lost Specimens One Day at a Time

Laboratory Waste Management: The New Regulations

Outreach as a Laboratory Service Line

Bringing Your Lab to the Operating Room

It is our opinion that much credit is due to those laboratory professionals who take time from their busy schedules to help promote best practices and raise the quality of clinical laboratory work. In reviewing our distinguished list of 2019 authors, undoubtedly you will know these leaders as friends and colleagues, and we hope you will congratulate them for their contributions.

Our archive of valuable articles is available at medlabmag.com/issues.We encourage you to take advantage of this experience and make sure your practice is trending in the right direction. We are excited to see what the next decade has in store for clinical laboratory practice and we hope to remain on the forefront with you.

With best regards,

David McCormick
Managing Editor
