MLM Webinar Series is Expanding!

October 2020 - Vol. 9 No. 9 - Page #2

As 2020 has introduced unprecedented changes to the delivery of health care, all clinical practitioners are finding new ways to virtually manage and engage in a litany of tasks. While concepts such as telemedicine and virtual networking have been around for years, never have those tools been thrust to the forefront with such rapacious necessity as they have now. Given that the primary mission of MedicalLab Management is to provide peer-to-peer content relevant to the direction and management of clinical laboratories, we are expanding our content to include a forthcoming slate of educational webinars.

You can download our webinar on Procalcitonin (PCT) Aided Antibiotic Stewardship which was presented from the somewhat unique perspective of Mike Broyles, PharmD, who serves as both laboratory director and pharmacy director for Five Rivers Medical Center in Pocahontas, Arkansas.

Mike has more than 25 years’ experience as a laboratory director and pharmacy director, and served as one of the presenters to the FDA in their 510K approval of PCT for use in sepsis and lower respiratory tract infections. You can download both the webinar and the slide package at

Our most recent webinar covered Case Studies in Revenue Management: Save Time and Money in the Lab. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, clinical laboratories were facing increased patient volumes, a rise in chronic illnesses, and an increasingly educated patient population demanding real-time information. Now, as labs transition to new ways of thinking and working, many are looking for strategies to properly manage the rising costs that result from these factors.

Utilization management is key to maintaining revenue and reducing costs, and can be leveraged to gain institutional buy-in and visibility. This webinar uses case studies to illustrate these strategies, while breaking down the myth of the “high fixed-cost lab” as a barrier to action. Download this webinar and the attendant slides at

As with all of MLM’s valuable content, these brief, 20-minute presentations are free of charge for practicing laboratorians. Simply visit to obtain or renew your free membership, and these and future presentations will be open to you.

We appreciate that your time is perhaps your most valuable resource in managing a busy and often burdened laboratory. It is our hope that these presentations will help shoulder some of that burden.
