Boosting Revenue and Pathologist Income During 2017 with Creative Strategies for Pricing, Pathologist Productivity, and Market Share Growth
Probably the single biggest challenge confronting pathology group practices today is the need to protect revenue and increase the income of individual pathologists. Nearly every individual pathologist in the U.S. knows of a group in the region that, due to successive and big cuts in revenue, was forced to merge, go out of business, or convert its pathologists to employees of the local hospital.
This is why savvy pathology groups make managing revenue their number one priority. They know there are strategies that pathologists can use to expand market share, as well as to negotiate better prices with managed care companies. Paired with smart cost-cutting in the histology lab and professional practice, such steps can actually increase the personal income of pathologists in the group. These are the key themes of this all-new DarkDaily webinar—take action to position your pathology group for clinical and financial success in 2017—register now!
