DxMA 2017 Webcast #4
"The Changing Customer Landscape and Trends in Laboratory Capital Acquisition Processes"
Over the past few years, a surge in the number of hospital mergers and acquisitions has increased both the size and number of health care systems while increasing the consolidation of both hospital and outreach testing volumes into centralized system and core laboratories. This, in combination with increasing reliance on sophisticated automation lines in these laboratories, is changing the nature and timing of capital acquisition processes. In this Webcast, Robert McGonnagle, Publisher of CAP Today and Lawrence Worden, Vice President and Senior Partner of Market Diagnostics International, will discuss these trends and present information from recent laboratory interviews on how acquisition processes are changing and what IVD manufacturers need to do to succeed in this new competitive environment.
Bob is the publisher of both CAP Today and Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine. He has been involved in the IVD industry for many years and is considered one of the savviest observers of our industry. He has been involved with the DxMA for over 20 years, serving as a Board Member and as President.
