NEW YORK (360Dx) – The Project Santa Fe Foundation has partnered with LTS Health to create an online platform that will serve as a knowledgebase to crowdsource ideas from health professionals and institutions in lab diagnostics.
The platform will facilitate documentation of evidence for diagnostics-driven population health ideas and for putting the ideas into practice.
The platform will launch in conjunction with the second annual Clinical Lab 2.0 Workshop, to be held Nov. 4 to 6 in Chicago. The first Clinical Lab 2.0 Workshop, held last fall in Santa Fe, introduced attendees from different health systems to population health initiatives developed by the organizations that had founded the Project Sante Fe Foundation. The non-profit foundation was founded by diagnostic industry thought leaders from Geisinger Health System, Henry Ford Health System, Northwell Health, and TriCore Reference Laboratories.
The knowledgebase platform being developed with LTS Health is intended to further promote the sharing of information on population health initiatives both within and outside the US, according to Khosrow Shotorbani, executive director at the Project Santa Fe Foundation.
"The relevance of Clinical Lab 2.0 has no borders: across the globe we share common challenges of ongoing sustainability. We have identified LTS Health as a like-minded partner in globalizing this movement, given their social purpose to help laboratories move the world forward," he said.
