FREE SPECIAL EDITION WHITE PAPER | Clinical Laboratories Under Pressure: Exploring Options to Re-establish Critical Relevancy and Maintain Independence

As a clinical laboratory leader, it’s important for you to understand why selling the lab will not solve core problems like overutilization, low-value testing, inappropriate use of high-cost testing, and provider confusion over best test choice which can lead to irrelevant results.

Rather, when you take action to build value within your lab, you can effectively transform it into a strategic unit that drives clinical and financial value for itself and for the organization it serves. Learn how by downloading this FREE White Paper, first in a three-part series developed in collaboration with Mayo Clinic Laboratories and Change Healthcare.
