On September 11 and 12, 2017, in Philadelphia, laboratory leaders from across the country gathered at Mayo Medical Laboratories’ 29th Outreach Conference. As we focus on increasing value in health care, the laboratory has a significant role. With seven podium presentations on the first day of the conference and 21 different breakout workshops the second day, laboratory peers and industry experts shared their insights on how to leverage the laboratory and its outreach program to provide value. Every speaker delivered his/her message with enthusiasm, highlighting successes, challenges, and future plans.
My Top 10:
The laboratory can be leveraged to add value through integration—integration of patients, providers, partners across organizations, and laboratories. Bring your energy, and don’t accept “no” for an answer.

We are already starting to plan our next conference. Mayo Medical Laboratories' 30th outreach conference will be held in Rochester, Minnesota, on September 18–19, 2018. We hope to see you there!
