Don't miss the upcoming 2024 ISLH February Webinar!
On Thursday, February 15th, 2024 the International Society for Laboratory Hematology will host the second webinar in the 2024 e-Learning series: "In Support of Interoperability: A Laboratory Perspective".
The webinar will be held by Jenna Rychert, PhD, University of Utah Department of Pathology and ARUP Laboratories.
Healthcare in the United States has become increasingly digital since the passage of the HITECH Act in 2009.
As a result, there is a growing need to optimize healthcare IT to allow for the interoperable exchange of data. As a result, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT has implemented their Final Rule for the 21st Century Cures Act.
This requires certified health IT systems to use modernized messaging standards for the safe and secure exchange of data within health information networks and also requires the use of terminology standards including LOINC, SNOMED CT, and UCUM for coding clinical and laboratory data.
Given the critical importance of laboratory results in the delivery of healthcare, laboratorians must become familiar with these principles of interoperability. Their clinical laboratory expertise is needed to appropriately structure and code test results to safeguard against improper aggregation or misinterpretation by downstream users and systems.
- Explain how the storage and exchange of health data has changed over the past 15 years
- Recognize standard terminologies used for semantic interoperability
- Explain how interoperable laboratory results support healthcare
All webinars will begin promptly at 11:00 AM Eastern Time US and are approximately 50 minutes long. There is no charge to participate in the live webinar.
We look forward to your participation in this event!
