Indiana Senator Todd Young and Jim Frain

The American Society for Healthcare Human Resources Administration (ASHHRA) of the American Hospital Association (AHA) is the nation's only membership organization dedicated to meeting the needs of the human resources professionals in health care.  The ASHHRA Advocacy Committee was on the Hill and presented the ASHHRA Hill Visit Position Paper focusing on Ensuring a Strong and Engaged Health Care Workforce.  The objective of the ASHHRA Advocacy Committee Hill Visit is to continue to build relationships with senators and representatives, reiterating the important health care viewpoint.  It is imperative to present our positions since their view may not include a focus on the issues unique to health care.

Jim Frain, Vice President Human Resources, met with the offices of both Indiana Senators as well as three Indiana Representatives on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 in Washington D.C.  Mr. Frain (right) is pictured with Indiana Senator Todd Young (left) in front of the Senate Chamber doors.

Performance Issues and Growing Volume Drive Need for Change

As the primary resource for hundreds of physician offices and two major hospital systems — St. Joseph Health System (including St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Mishawaka, IN, and Plymouth Medical Center in Plymouth, IN) and Beacon Health System (including Memorial Hospital of South Bend and Elkhart General Hospital in Elkhart, IN) — The Medical Foundation’s reference laboratory knows the importance of quality results and quick response time.

 

So when the central lab needed better reliability and performance from its current influenza A/B and RSV assay — and a more efficient way to process its ever-growing volume — it decided to seek alternative solutions.

 

While at a conference in 2013, Kevin Maggert, MT (ASCP), Manager of Flow Cytometry and Molecular Pathology discovered Simplexa® solutions from DiaSorin Molecular. After sharing the lab’s needs and receiving a complete workflow analysis, The Medical Foundation upgraded its instrument platform with three Integrated Cyclers and switched to the Simplexa® Flu  A/B and RSV Direct assay. The comprehensive assay detects and differentiates a total of 92 influenza A, influenza B and RSV strains, and the Integrated Cycler offers high sensitivity molecular testing and easy-to-interpret results — all in a small footprint, which helps the lab optimize its limited bench space.
