Inaugural MEDLAB Americas Set to Attract Thousands of Leading Medical Laboratory and IVD Professionals from Across the Globe

Exciting new flagship event to showcase new lab equipment and services as the ‚laboratory zone‘ of FIME 2017

DUBAI, UAE, June 30, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Thousands of medical laboratory industry experts and equipment suppliers from across Northern and Latin America will be converging at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, USA, from August 8-10, 2017 for the inaugural MEDLAB Americas.

With the USA Diagnostics & Medical Laboratories sector (in vivo and in vitro) boasting revenue of $53 billion last year, with an annual growth of 0.9% between 2012 and 2017, the impact of laboratory medicine on patient outcomes is being bolstered with huge investment in bridging the gap between the lab professionals and doctors.

North America is the largest region globally for the medical / clinical laboratory market, accounting for a market share between 30% and 50%. Some of the key factors driving the growth of this market are the rising rate of chronic and infectious diseases in the USA, a rapidly aging population, a growing preference for point-of-care testing and personalised medicine and the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

MEDLAB Americas, the latest edition to the MEDLAB series portfolio and existing as part of the 27th edition of The Florida International Medical Expo (FIME), will provide first-class networking opportunities for laboratory experts, scientists, researchers and clinicians as well as featuring over 163 cutting-edge lab products and services from leading Chinese, German, Korean and American and other medical equipment and device companies.

The MEDLAB Americas trade show has been integrated into FIME and labeled the ‚laboratory zone‘ welcoming more end-users from the lab with purchasing power authority. The entire lab zone, including the exhibition and congress, is free to attend until July 24, 2017 when an $80 registration fee will apply. Once registered, delegates will gain full access to all areas of the event.

„A proven exhibition model on an international scale, the MEDLAB portfolio comprises global exhibitions, spanning across the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Europe and the USA,“ says Dave Panther, Vice President of Sales at Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, organizers of the FIME and MEDLAB Series. „With 15 years of growth and development, MEDLAB has established itself as the largest lab expo and congress worldwide.“

The MEDLAB Americas Congress, provided by Cleveland Clinic and supported by the College of American Pathologists, will also have three conference tracks dedicated to Clinical Microbiology, Hematology and Point of Care Testing. The tracks are CME accredited and offer up to 13.5 credits for attending laboratory technicians, medical laboratory biologists, clinical chemists, scientists, hematologists, pathologists, and others. The aim is to boost medical knowledge for medical laboratory professionals, and offer unparalleled education and management solutions to help advance laboratory skills and improve laboratory services in today’s competitive market.

According to Dr. Fadi W. Abdul-Karim, Professor of Pathology and Vice Chair for Education, Robert Tomsich Pathology and Laboratory Med Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, USA, and Activity Director for MEDLAB: „We are delighted to finally see the MEDLAB Congress in the USA, as part of the global expansion of the MEDLAB series. MEDLAB has already enjoyed considerable success in the Middle East and Asia due to MEDLAB conferences being meticulously planned by a group of highly respected laboratory experts.“

„The aim of MEDLAB Americas is to improve the value of services that the laboratory delivers to end-users such as patients and physicians. We fully embrace the latest trends and advances within the clinical laboratory setting including quality, safety and finance management,“ he adds. „It is a priority to implement quick and safe selection and focus on performance and evaluation of results of new and established laboratory tests to prevent diagnostic errors.“

Ventana Research Launches Research into the State of Customer Analytics

New Research will explore the use of and intentions for analytics in customer-related activities

BEND, OR, June 29, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Ventana Research today launched its latest benchmark research initiative examining the state of customer analytics. The research is designed to examine the use of and intentions for analytics and metrics by all lines of business involved in customer-related activities.

Organizations have been talking about analyzing customer data for more than three decades. Over time, this interest evolved into a desire for the „360-degree view of the customer,“ a comprehensive view drawn from all available customer-related data. Not many organizations have achieved this yet. The biggest obstacle to acquiring a 360-degree view is the increasing volume and variety of forms of data that contain information about customers. A sometimes-bewildering number of data sources contribute to the typical enterprise’s big data stores, among them business applications (CRM, ERP etc.), knowledge management, social media posts, call recordings, text messages, and scripts from web chats and instant messages. These often are complex, largely unstructured forms of data such as speech, ad-hoc text, graphic images, video and alerts, and other system events.

This benchmark research program will identify, explore and quantify the ways in which organizations use analytics to support customer-related activities and how these methods have changed since our previous research on this topic. It will explore in detail how companies have improved their performance in using customer analytics, and their plans to continue such improvements. The research will identify the types of organizations that are interested in adopting improvements to customer-related analytics, why they are interested, who is making the purchase decision, in what time frame and what selection criteria they use. It will explore the value of having more effective and collaborative analytics processes, and it will assess the maturity of analytics systems and practices and the use of performance metrics and key indicators in all lines of business supporting customer-related activities.

„Companies are looking to the customer experience as a key way to differentiate themselves against the competition,“ said Richard Snow, VP & Research Director. „These organizations are focusing on providing what I call an E.P.I.C. customer experience: easy, personalized, in context, and consistent. To provide such experiences, organizations need their customer analytics to process all forms of customer-related data and visualize it in ways that support all customer-related activities, including marketing, sales, service, finance, and operations.“

Those interested in learning more about or participating in this benchmark research can do so at www.ventanaresearch.com/benchmark/customer-analytics. Ventana Research, a leading business technology research and advisory services firm, provides qualified research participants with an incentive and complementary report, which includes both key insights and best practices from the benchmark research.

Religion Doesn’t Have to be a Moot Point When Finding Love, According to Pagan Dating Service

Pagans are increasingly turning to the Internet to connect with like-minded people and avoid stigma related to certain religious and nonreligious practices.

MIAMI, FL, June 29, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Pagans have been persecuted for centuries due to the fact that they keep on refusing to conform to the mainstream religious beliefs. However, there has never been a better time to be one’s own, and live life without succumbing to any norms or expectations. Thanks to the Pagan Dating Service, pagans from all corners of the country are now free to hold whichever religious beliefs they please, if any, when looking for love online.

It’s interesting to note that the religious composition of the US is changing. According to the Pew Research Center, Christianity is still a dominant religion, but the Christian share of the population has seen a sharp decrease from 2007 to 2015, dropping from 78.4% to 70.6%. Most Christians were Protestants back in 2007, when the Pew Research Center first conducted a Religious Landscape Study, with 51.3%, but in 2015, 46.5% of respondents identified themselves as Protestants.

Further, the most interesting finding of the 2015 study is that while the Christian share of the population has been dropping year after year, the number of Americans who don’t identify as religious is seeing a sharp increase. In 2007, 16% of Americans said they were religiously unaffiliated, while in 2015 that number was as high as 23%. This not only means that people are turning their back on religion, but it also means those who are not religious are speaking up, and there are more pagan singles out there than ever.

These findings are expected to give rise to pagan dating sites, as more people turn to pagan dating in search of love and religious freedom. Pagan Dating Service is seeing a surge in its member base because more people feel free to express their non-religious beliefs in everything they do, including dating, and there is no doubt that these figures will only grow in the future.

Pagan Dating Service is available 24/7 from all over the country and can be found at https://www.pagandatingservice.com/.

Common Camp Care Package Restrictions: How to Avoid Rejection!

Understanding why summer camps are tightening care package restrictions makes it easier to avoid a returned package!

FAIRFIELD, CT, June 29, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Gone are the days when anything could go in a camp care package! Most camps have at least a few care package guidelines. I’ve compiled a list of the most common care package restrictions:

1. No Food: All sorts of critters from bugs to bears are drawn to food! Best to keep edibles out of care packages!

2. Keep The Packages Small: Imagine storing and sorting through mountains of boxes every day! Then delivering packages with in the camp…and throwing away all that packaging. Good grief!

3. Limit the Number of Packages Sent: Once again, most camps don’t have space or the counselor power to handle hundreds of boxes.

4. Banned Items: The most common taboos (besides food and candy) include electronics, fireworks, water pistols (or anything shaped like a gun), spray color, and silly string.

5. Flat Packs or Large Envelopes Only: More and more camps are changing their policies to only allow large USPS padded envelopes. Don’t despair! Look for puzzle books, card games,and inflatables. You might also include the makings for friendship bracelets, origami papers, journals, sketchbooks….Believe me, plenty of fun can fit in one of those envelopes!

6. No Care Packages at All: Distressing for parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles but your camper will probably be too busy to care!

Before you spend hours shopping, and packing, and shipping, be sure to check your child’s current camp care package policy! A happy camp means a happy camper!

Mirth in a Box sells funny and unusual care packages for campers and college students. We have plenty of traditional care packages, over a dozen flat packs and if neither of those options float your boat, you can create your own custom care package by choosing from 100’s of items in our Build Your Own Box section!
