Presentation Title: Introduction of a managed service contract in Histology
Introduction a managed service contract in Histology UHL. The concept of a managed service contract (MSC) is already widely used in blood sciences in Ireland and is already in place in the blood sciences laboratory here in UHL. The Histology department will be the first Histology laboratory in the Republic of Ireland to adopt a managed service contract. Here we will discuss the introduction of an MSC in our Histology laboratory, the challenges, the implementation and the change management process involved.
My name is Deirdre McCrae and am working as a chief medical scientist in UHL since May 2022. Previously I have worked in UHG and CUH and have over 20 years of experience in Histology. I have seen may changes through my career to date but adopting a managed service contract in Histology is definitely the biggest challenge to date.
