Abstract:  LabCorp has radically altered the healthcare industry by combining diagnostic and drug development capabilities within one company. This makes the vision of precision medicine, patient centric care, improved clinical trials, and other new approaches to healthcare a near term possibility. This transformation is heavily dependent upon the rapid adoption of modern technology; including AI/ML, big data, modern software development techniques, bioinformatics, and many other advancements. During this presentation, Berberian will share the business case for this new approach to healthcare as well as a variety of technology initiatives that support LabCorp’s mission - “to improve health and improve lives”.
