Miraca Life Sciences, (MLS) the nation’s largest independent anatomic pathology lab, will have a significant presence at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2014, including the presentation of nine research posters, two platforms, and the introduction of consultative services for practices as they face new CMS regulations.
Miraca Life Sciences’ nine research posters and two platforms will cover a wide range of subjects related to gastrointestinal pathology, and one of the poster presentations, Low Prevalence of Microscopic Colitis and Inflammatory Bowel in Americans of East Asian Ancestry, has been selected by the DDW Program Chairs to be featured in a special poster hall tour session, which will involve a private mini-presentation to a moderated tour group.
Visitors to Miraca’s tradeshow booth #2153 can learn about Miraca’s technology partnerships and product offerings. The Miraca team will share with attendees how Miraca can help practices adopt an EHR and work toward achieving Meaningful Use compliance and preparing for ICD-10.
“As a premier pathology service provider, Miraca Life Sciences has partnered with gastroenterology practices in the development, implementation and integration of technology solutions for their practices,” said Dan Kelly, Vice President of Client Connectivity at Miraca Life Sciences. “Miraca believes in collaboration and partnerships with our gastroenterologist clients and we know that healthy, successful practices are best to support the health of their patients. It is not only about adopting an EHR system but ensuring it is used properly so that it is beneficial to patients, referring providers and all stakeholders in patient care. In that effort Miraca has partnered with the top gastroenterology software vendors to help gastroenterologists adopt and use their EHR to achieve Meaningful Use compliance, prepare for ICD-10 and become interoperable.”
DDW is considered the largest and most prestigious meeting in the world for GI professionals. DDW will be held May 3-6 in Chicago at McCormick Place Convention Center.
