The U.S. healthcare system is undergoing monumental changes, with the current healthcare policy shifting from a fee-for-service to a value-based reimbursement model. Clinical and anatomical pathology laboratories are facing large reimbursement cuts, and must rethink how they analyze and utilize their clinical, financial, and operational data. Advanced analytics and data management are critical to organizations seeking to improve their current operations and enhance quality of care.
In this comprehensive guide, we cover topics from laboratory outreach operations, to payor collaboration, to cost containment. Loaded with dashboards and views, this strategic planning guide will show you how laboratories can drive improvements across the institution with advanced analytics.
In the first of the Strategic Planning for Laboratories whitepaper series, we are going to go through healthcare reform. The Survive Healthcare Reform With Advanced Analytics chapter will touch on reimbursement cuts, quality of care, and transparency and accountability.
