CHICAGO – AACC welcomed thousands of medical professionals and healthcare leaders at the 70th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo from July 29–August 2. The meeting showcased advancements in clinical testing technology and research that improve the ability of healthcare providers to diagnose patients quickly and accurately and ensure that patients get effective medical treatment.

As of Wednesday, August 1, more than 20,000 laboratory medicine professionals had registered for the meeting, which is the highest meeting attendance AACC has ever had in Chicago. It is also the highest number of attendees that have ever come to the meeting in a location outside of California. More attendees are expected today, the last day of the meeting.

Highlights of the conference program included five plenary talks presented by scientific luminaries on subjects ranging from precision cancer therapeutics to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) new Essential Diagnostics List. Brian Druker, MD, winner of AACC’s 2018 Wallace H. Coulter Lectureship Award, delivered the opening keynote on his research that led to targeted treatment for chronic myeloid leukemia, which enables patients to forego toxic chemotherapy.

Monday’s plenary speaker, Kenneth Setchell, PhD, outlined how mass spectrometry can illuminate the underlying molecular cause of disease and pave the way for life-saving medications. Tuesday’s plenary with Denise Galloway, PhD, described the journey of discovery that resulted in the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, as well as the substantial work still needed to increase HPV vaccination rates. On Wednesday, Rossa Chiu, PhD, explored the significant impact of cell-free fetal DNA analysis on prenatal testing and care. And in today’s closing keynote, Timothy Amukele, MD, PhD, and Lee Schroeder, MD, PhD, discussed how the WHO’s Essential Diagnostics List promises to advance patient care in resource-limited countries by improving the quality of and access to laboratory testing.

Additionally, in a competition to win AACC’s Disruptive Technology Award, three biotech innovators—Ativa Medical, GNA Biosolutions, and Two Pore Guys—presented data on portable tests that could help more patients get accurate diagnoses. GNA Biosolutions won with the company’s ultrafast molecular diagnostic system called pulse controlled amplification, which could make it easier to perform infectious diseases tests in regions without access to hospital laboratories.

The 70th AACC Clinical Lab Expo featured 819 exhibitors and covered 258,295 net square feet, which is the highest number of exhibitors and largest show floor in AACC’s history. This dynamic exhibit featured groundbreaking tests from all laboratory medicine disciplines, including mobile health, molecular diagnostics, mass spectrometry, point-of-care, and automation.

“The research and technology presented at the 70th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo illustrates the integral role laboratory medicine plays in advancing patient care and will make a significant impact on medicine worldwide,” said AACC CEO Janet B. Kreizman. “Every year, laboratory medicine experts develop innovative solutions to pressing patient health problems, and I look forward to seeing the new advances that will be presented at next year’s conference.”

AACC 2016-2018年战略计划
AACC在实施2013年设定的战略计划方面取得了巨大的进步。为了加速前进步伐,2013-2015年的计划包含五个目标领域和十九项策略以指导协会活动、达成协会使命。2016-2018年的计划在上一个计划的基础上设立,过往的成功让我们更坚定不移的去执行新的计划。在当前发展趋势下,新的计划依然以协会的使命和愿景为前提。根据现今的实验室医学环境,为全面满足各专家的需求,我们扩展了策略规划范围,但协会的使命和愿景始终是我们优先考虑的。

AACC的愿景:
通过实验室医学改善人们健康水平和完善医疗保健系统。

AACC的使命:
AACC致力于推动全球临床实验室科学及医学行业在实践和专业方面的进步。

2016-2018年计划的方向和重点
生物医疗上的发现、技术上的创新和医疗保健环境的改变让实验室医学迅速发展。以疗效为付款依据的模式逐渐形成,我们必须要调整对实验室医学事务的思考方式。随着医疗知识的不断增多,懂基础疾病生物进程的临床医生不能保证也很了解基础实验室化验知识。因此,实验室主任接受专门的化验学博士级培训,并把学到的知识传授给医疗保健团队成员。新的诊断发现和诊断技术将不断增多,实验室主任的角色至关重要,他们必须保证化验模式得以正确应用,化验结果也有迹可循。

作为实验室医学专家的首要协会,AACC要着重加强在科教方面的研究。这些研究将满足博士生会员与时俱进的需要。而且,AACC要成为临床实验室专家们的社交场合,也是他们发展有价值合作的场合。AACC要做好自身定位,加强会员们的整体意识和相互理解关系,给医疗保健队伍带来特别的专业知识,也要在行业重要政策事务问题上发声。最后,AACC要确保足够的资源来让组织蓬勃发展,使其能持续为会员和利益相关者提供宝贵的项目和服务。

在2013年,AACC的领导者呼吁会员们成为改革伙伴,共同致力于达成协会的使命和愿景。众多会员响应,并积极参与了AACC的倡议和活动。2016年初,有更多人志愿加入新的委员会,为2016年的管理改革服务。我们即将进入到执行战略计划的下一个阶段,继续执行2013年制定的重点计划,并不断根据当前形式作出调整,在这一过程中,我们还要依靠AACC志愿领导们的积极参与。

目标领域1:会员社团
提供有意义的、丰富的会员活动,让实验室医学专家们可以在此社交、合作,与更大的实验室医学团体保持联系。

目标领域2:科学与创新
推动实验室医学理论的发展和其在医疗保健中的应用,提交患者的疗效。

目标领域3:内容与教育
提供即时和前沿的信息,加强关于实验室医学理论的了解,提高患者护理水平并改善其健康状况。

目标领域4:宣传与影响力
提高对实验室医学价值和临床实验室专家知识的认识,鼓励并推进对行业有影响、对AACC会员职业生涯有促进作用的政策实施。

目标领域5:资源和能力
加强和发展协会的财力,确保其保持活力和增长,也确保其基础设施和管理与目标一致。


AACC Strategic Plan 2016-2018

AACC has made tremendous progress in implementing its previous Strategic Plan, set in place in 2013. The result of an intense process, the 2013-2015 plan included five goal areas and 19 strategies to guide the association’s activities as it worked to advance its mission. The 2016-2018 plan builds upon the previous plan and the successes realized as a result of unwavering commitment to executing that plan. In the context of current trends, the new plan stays true to the association’s vision and mission, maintaining a focus on constant priorities even while extending the plan's strategies to ensure AACC meets the needs of the full breadth of professionals in today’s laboratory medicine environment.

AACC’s Vision:
Better health and healthcare through laboratory medicine.

AACC’s Mission:
AACC provides global leadership in advancing the practice and profession of clinical laboratory science and medicine.

Direction and Priorities for 2016-2018

Laboratory medicine is rapidly evolving as a result of biomedical discoveries, innovations in technology, and the changing healthcare environment. The shift toward outcomes-based payment models has already begun and we must adjust the way we think about the business of laboratory medicine. As medical knowledge continues to expand, clinicians with vast knowledge of biological processes underlying disease cannot also have deep knowledge of the science underlying laboratory tests. With their specialized doctoral-level training in the science of tests, laboratory directors provide this unique knowledge to the healthcare team. With an ever-growing array of new diagnostic discoveries and technologies, the laboratory director is crucial to ensuring the right testing paradigm is applied and the results interpreted in the context of all available knowledge.

As the premier association for laboratory medicine professionals, AACC must emphasize cutting-edge research in its science and education programs. This approach will address the needs of doctoral-level members in keeping abreast of the latest developments. Further, AACC must be known among all clinical laboratory professionals as the place where they can network and nurture valuable collaborations. AACC must be positioned well to enhance general awareness and understanding of the unique expertise its members bring to the healthcare team and to serve as the voice of the field in important policy matters. Finally, AACC must ensure sufficient resources to thrive as an organization so that it can continue to offer its valuable programs and services to its members and stakeholders.

In 2013, AACC’s leaders called on members to be change partners engaged in advancing the association’s mission and vision. Many answered that call and remain active in AACC initiatives and programs. Many more volunteered in early 2016 to serve on one of the new committees instituted as part of the 2016 governance changes. As we move into the next phase of implementing the strategic priorities first identified in 2013, and refined in the current strategic plan, we will continue to rely on the active participation of AACC’s dedicated volunteer leaders.

Goal Area 1: Member Community

Provide a meaningful and rich member experience in which laboratory medicine professionals can network, collaborate, and connect to the larger laboratory medicine community

Goal Area 2: Science & Innovation
Advance new knowledge in laboratory medicine and its application to healthcare to improve patient outcomes

Goal Area 3: Content & Education
Provide contemporary and cutting-edge information to enhance knowledge in the field of laboratory medicine for the advancement of patient care and improved health outcomes

Goal Area 4: Advocacy & Influence
Enhance awareness of the value of laboratory medicine and of the unique knowledge of clinical laboratory experts, and advocate for policies that affect the field and improve the professional lives of AACC members

Goal Area 5: Resources & Capacity
Strengthen and expand the association’s financial resources to ensure continued vitality and growth and ensure its infrastructure and governance align with its goals
