American Association of Bioanalysts Annual Meeting

May 17, 2013

Julie Scott Allen and Erin Will Morton presented at the American Association of Bioanalysts Annual Meeting. At the meeting, Julie and Erin gave presentations to attendees on the major events in Washington impacting clinical laboratories, using social media to enhance an advocacy agenda, and the impact of health reform implementation on clinical laboratories. Julie and Erin discussed the importance of getting Members of Congress to visit clinical laboratories to better understand the day-to-day operations of the lab business and the role that labs play in patient care. During the health reform presentation, they discussed how independent clinical laboratories can better position themselves to be part of Accountable Care Organizations and other new models of health care delivery.
