Dear Colleagues,

 

The next IFCC webinar: "Data-driven Operations and Machine Learning Applications in Clinical Laboratories" will be held on 23 May, 2022.

 

Recent advances in computational techniques have improved the utility of machine learning algorithms (ML) in laboratory medicine. Today, data-driven approaches and ML algorithms continue to be adopted and integrated into the complex infrastructure of health information systems (HIS) to improve clinical decision-making. In this context, clinical laboratories are trying to move from testing the technology to implementing it at scale to maximize impact and develop a ML -enabled tool to support clinical decision-making. In particular, it is important for laboratory professionals to consider and use such tools to enhance the value of clinical laboratory results.

This webinar will focus on the integration of data-driven laboratory workflows and the powerful technology of ML that offers significant potential to improve patient outcomes. The presenters have published several studies on models using multiple ML methods.

 

This webinar comprises of three following presentations of 20 min each, followed by 20 min of panel discussion at the end where the speakers will answer to your questions.

Chair/Moderator: Prof. Sedef Yenice

Talk 1: " The role of digital transformation in improving clinical laboratory management " - Dr. Merve Sibel Güngören

Talk 2: " The Pursuits of Data Analytics and Machine learning applications in laboratory operations " - Dr. Deniz Ilhan Topçu

Talk 3: " Implementation of laboratory results in machine learning-based clinical decision support systems" - Dr. Hikmet Can Çubukçu

 

 

  • Schedule: 20 min per speaker plus 20 min panel discussion
  • Time Zones: Live presentations starting at: 10:00AM EDT-New York ; 4:00PM CET-Rome; 10:00PM CST-Beijing;

Dear Colleagues,

The  IFCC webinar: "COVID -19  and Laboratory Medicine Role in Georgia" was held on 23 March, 2022.

 

This IFCC webinar discussed how laboratory medicine met the challenges posed by the medical field during the Covid-19 pandemic. The webinar was prepared with the support of GLMA (Georgian Association of Laboratory Medicine).

1. Hospital Medical Laboratory Organization Experience for COVID-19 Pandemic: In the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, the Georgian government, at the first stage, set a strategic priority to staff the Border Republic Hospital as soon as possible and announced full mobilization! The webinar chronologically describes the processes and their accompanying epidemic situation in the country, support from state and partner international organizations and results obtained by the laboratory service team, and future plans.

2.  Laboratory Diagnosis of COVID 19 Currents Issues and Challenges in Georgia.The COVID-19 has had an important impact on clinical laboratories in Georgia during the past two years. Developed molecular diagnostic tools actively implemented in the clinical lab and determine the strategy to fight COVID 19. Importance of preanalytical stage increased - collecting the proper respiratory tract specimen at the right time from the right anatomic site is essential for a prompt and accurate molecular diagnosis of COVID-19. During the analytical stage, RT-PCR assays remain the molecular test of choice for the etiologic diagnosisof SARS-CoV-2 active infection while antibody-based techniques are being introduced as supplemental tools. Different approaches were implemented in the active phase including syndromic diagnosis using the multiplex PCR to cover the population and also other clinical conditions except COVID 19. In the post-analytical stage, testing results are carefully interpreted using both molecular and serological findings. Random access, integrated devices with scalable capacities facilitate the rapid and accurate diagnosis and monitoring of SARS-CoV-2 infections and greatly assist in the control of this outbreak.

3. Relationship between Lactate and C-reactive Protein in post-Covid-19 Patients. COVID-19 fibrosis is one of the complications of COVID-19 pneumonia. It is estimated to be prevalent in around one-third of COVID-19 infected hospitalized patients. In Post-covid -19 patients was studied CBC+dif, ventilatory parameters in blood PH, pCO2, pO2, HCO3, anion gap, lactate, LDH,CRP and haptoglobin.  A correlation between lactate, CRP, and haptoglobin was found.  Results should be only considered as acontribution to a better understanding of the physiopathology of COVID-19-induced lung injury.

 

This webinar comprises of three following presentations of 20 min each, followed by 20 min of panel discussion at the end where the speakers answered to your questions.

 

Chair/Moderator: Dr. Nino Tabatadze

Talk 1: "Hospital Medical Laboratory Organization Experience for COVID-19 Pandemic" - Dr. Ekaterine Kupatadze

Talk 2:  "Laboratory Diagnosis of COVID 19 Currents Issues and Challenges in Georgia" - Dr. Nino Bakuradze

Talk 3:  "Relationship between Lactate and C-reactive Protein in post-Covid-19 Patients" - Prof. Manana Akhvlediani
