Bringing together vital information on regulation, reimbursement, technology, and marketing for the clinical laboratory industry
Spicewood, TX and Jersey City, NJ—September 7, 2016: The Dark Intelligence Group (DIG) and Diagnostic Marketing Association (DxMA) announce the co-location of their annual conferences for 2017 to benefit members of the clinical laboratory industry. Held in New Orleans, the DxMA Global Marketing Summit begins Sunday night, April 30, with the Dx Creative Communications Awards ceremony, and continues May 1 with the Global Marketing Summit featuring technology and marketing sessions. DIG, publisher of The Dark Report, kicks off its Executive War College conference on Monday night with its welcome receptions and continues Tuesday-Wednesday, May 2-3, featuring sessions on regulation, reimbursement, and management. All activities are conducted at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel on Canal Street.
(December 19, 2016) One of the biggest developments in EHRs and health IT in 2016—unfortunately—was the rise of cyberattacks. It’s the unintended consequence of ditching paper records for electronic, on in-house systems or in the cloud. It’s easier to steal or compromise a greater number of records at one time when they’re digital. And the records themselves are lucrative (although the price for medical records appears to have dropped, perhaps because they’re now flooding the dark web market).
AUSTIN, Texas (December 1, 2016) Across the U.S., many clinical laboratories and hospital lab outreach programs are not only holding their own, but also regularly adding new clients and taking market share away from larger lab company competitors. Such sales success by these labs goes against the popular wisdom that times are tough, especially for smaller medical laboratories.
