PLANNING FOR CHANGE

 

The adoption of a new hematology system can result in efficiency gains for your laboratory. However, technology change can also disrupt the daily routine of your laboratory staff. If not addressed early, it can result in delays in achieving test of record and also impact staff morale.

 

This guide was created to help plan for a successful technology transition and to support you in your laboratory’s transformation. It provides important implementation considerations and step-by-step recommendations on how to successfully implement the new hematology analyzer in your laboratory.

 

This guide, along with dedicated training, customer support and other educational resources, are all designed to help you with the seamless implementation of your new solution and to give you the confidence you need as you begin your transformation journey.

 

A successful laboratory transformation starts with a detailed change management plan in support of the new technology installation and implementation that typically includes the following elements:

 

COMMUNICATION STRATEGY

to set expectations, as well as gain early buy in and engagement from all major stakeholder segments.

 

GOVERNANCE TEAM

that includes a mix of stakeholders that may be impacted by the introduction of new ttechnology.

 

TECHNOLOGY COMPATIBILITY ASSESSMENT

to mitigate any integration issues (connectivity and rules set up) with either middleware or LIS, and help ensure that new hematology analyzer is configured to meet your workflow needs.

 

IMPLEMENTATION PLAN AND SCHEDULE

that may be monitored for any necessary course corrections.

 

TRAINING PLAN

for various user segments that is aligned with how their job may be impacted by the new technology.

 

PLAN TO CELEBRATE

the achievement of key milestones and recognize change champions.
