URGENT: New - Please Participate in updating the Thyroid SOLP


In cooperation with the National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry the American Thyroid Asociation is spearheading an intersociety and international effort to update the Academy's monograph "Standards of Laboratory Practice: Laboratory Support for the Diagnosis & Monitoring of Thyroid Disease" in the coming year. The goal is to have a new version finalized by June, 2000. The leaders of this project plan to distribute this new version at the International Thyroid Symposium to be held in Kyoto, Japan in October, 2000.

Informatics Meeting Notice and Call for Abstracts
Over the past several years the Academy has sponsored several meetings with the aim of exploring the leading edge concepts of Point-of-Care testing. In this tradition, the NACB is planning a Year 2000 symposium, entitled "Laboratory and the Electronic Medical Record - Issues and Opportunities". The two day meeting is being designed to identify and discuss critical issues of the integration of laboratory information systems with requisite data archiving to the Electronic Medical (or Health) Record (EMR or EHR). Several organizations are cooperating to co-sponsor this conference including the Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS), the Clinical Laboratory Management Association (CLMA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Philadelphia Section of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). The conference will again be held in Philadelphia, on September 15th and 16th 2000.
