2021 Lab Quality Confab
Scheduled to happen in San Antonio!

Dear lab quality colleague,

As you know, new confirmed infections of the COVID-19 virus continued to rise last fall. Even as the New Year arrived, daily case counts have remained at high levels. Consequently, we are watching to see if there will be an opportunity to conduct a live Lab Quality Confab conference this fall. We currently have reserved the Hyatt Regency San Antonio for Nov. 5-6, 2021.

Your clinical laboratories and anatomic pathology groups are on the front lines of the pandemic, providing unprecedented numbers of SARS-CoV-2 tests. Many of your labs have used Lean and Six Sigma methods to deal with the full range of operational issues necessary to support COVID-19 testing, while at the same time continuing to serve your hospitals and physician clients. We’ve heard from some of you that the methods and case studies in workflow redesign and process improvement that you mastered at previous Lab Quality Confabs have been essential in helping your clinical laboratory address all the challenges associated with the pandemic.

In the meantime, we are exploring some virtual options that may allow us to bring you some of the crucial educational and networking parts of the program. In fact, soon we will be reaching out to all of our past attendees with a survey to gauge interest in that type of event. If you can’t come to us for the event, perhaps we can bring the event to you.

Until then, stay tuned, stay safe, and thank you for your years of supporting the Lab Quality Confab.

Sincerely,
Robert L. Michel
Founder and Producer
