Lab Advisory Council

The Lab Advisory Council provides HIDA guidance on research, publications, products, and services needed in the lab market segment and to provide a forum for distributors to network and to exchange insights on improving the diagnostics market’s strategies. The council typically meets twice a year, in the Spring at Collaborative Conferences and in the fall at Streamlining Healthcare Expo & Business Exchange.
