Leveraging the Laboratory

In this episode of Mayo Clinic Laboratories’ “Leveraging the Laboratory” podcast, host Jane Hermansen, outreach manager at Mayo Clinic Laboratories, speaks with outreach solutions strategists Ellen Dijkman Dulkes and Brianne Newton.

Specific topics of discussion include:

  • Strategies for having effective customer performance update meetings.
  • What service elements, operational tasks, and specimen processing functions should be reviewed in a customer performance update report.
