SRL Diagnostics, India’s leading diagnostics chain with the largest accredited lab network, has signed an agreement with the US-based Mayo Clinic Laboratories to further collaborate on research, training, co-hosting seminars, conferences and symposia around esoteric tests. The collaboration aims to facilitate initiatives between the two organisations in order to help physicians maintain lifelong knowledge and skills for safe clinical practice.
As the world is trying to grapple with the fallout from the pandemic, the need to focus on up-skilling, technology optimization and clinical knowledge is imperative within the medical fraternity. The collaboration will further help physicians maintain lifelong knowledge and skills for unique, niche, yet critical, lab tests in order to present accurate diagnosis and provide right treatment to the patients, especially in super specialised fields of medicine. The prime areas of educational symposia include laboratory analysis for Neurology, Oncology, Hematology, Gastroenterology, Infectious Diseases, Endocrinology and Inborn errors of metabolism.
Commenting on the collaboration, Anand K., CEO, SRL Diagnostics said, “I believe this is a very good opportunity for cross-fertilisation of ideas. It is wonderful to find a collaborator who shares the same ideology of providing high-quality and cost-effective diagnostics services that improve physicians’ ability to care for patients. We are inspired by the knowledge management initiatives at Mayo Clinic Laboratories and looking forward to emulate this model in India. In the coming months and years, we will fully make use of the knowledge sharing arrangement for the benefit of the customers and patients we serve.”
“In the globalised environment, having exposure to health practices in other parts of the world is an asset for medical professionals. Our collaboration with Mayo Clinic Laboratories will only empower physicians in India in augmenting quality of patient care to very high level,”
SRL Diagnostics and Mayo Clinic Laboratories have a long-standing collaboration of more than two decades and this new agreement is a further expansion of the relationship. SRL has one of the largest networks of the most experienced and renowned doctors, most of them who are MD, PhDs, scientists, and technical staff in the country, in addition to most state-of-the-art innovations in place to serve its customers. Through its extensive network, SRL Diagnostics touches the lives of patients in over 600 cities spread across India, with highest number of doctors and technicians on roles and a portfolio of 4,000 tests designed to best serve an average of 13 million patients every year.
