Case Studies in Clinical Laboratory Test Stewardship: The Financial and Clinical Impact of Clinical Decision Support in Hospital Laboratories

This white paper – the third in a three-part series developed in collaboration with Mayo Clinic Laboratories and Change Healthcare – provides frontline perspective and commentary from experts and physicians on the application and value of decision support in the laboratory. It also includes early-adopter proof points from hospital laboratories that have successfully implemented third-party decision support to achieve their stewardship goals, including EHR interventions and ongoing monitoring of utilization.

Translating Clinical Laboratory Science Into Business Objectives: How an Educational Program Measured and Analyzed Performance and Transformed the Approach to Improving Laboratory Operations

Now more than ever before, clinical labs are under pressure to operate efficiently, accurately, and timely, all while still making money. Doctors and patients have come to expect a 24-hour turnaround for most tests. Clinical labs throughout the United States have been slashing budgets, many literally to the point of no return. At least 13 public health labs in four states have shuttered since 2003, which posed a serious problem when COVID-19 hit because resources did not meet demand.

Critical Factors for Launching a Clinical Decision Support System in the Hospital Laboratory

This white paper—part 2 of a three-part series— provides practical pearls on how a proven decision support solution and one that is a good fit for your lab can be the foundation of an effective laboratory stewardship program, and can greatly assist in controlling utilization and meeting the challenges of value-based care. As well, the paper also clearly explains the points for “buy versus build” laboratory decision support.

Choosing the right decision support solution will empower your lab and hospital leaders, clinicians, and staff with more time to focus their core competencies on the provision of healthcare. Learn what you need to know by downloading this FREE whitepaper now.

Anatomic Pathology at the Tipping Point? The Economic Case for Adopting Digital Technology and AI Applications Now

Driven by recent technological and regulatory approvals, leading academic and commercial laboratories are increasingly going digital to overcome significant gaps in efficiency and diagnostic accuracy. These same labs are implementing computational applications that leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to expand on the productivity, quality, and confidence gains they’ve already realized.

Download the White Paper now to get a synopsis of recent research and real-world cases that demonstrate the economic and scientific necessity of adopting digital pathology platforms and AI applications. Gather perspective from in-depth interviews with industry-leading labs that lay out the benefits they themselves gained from going digital.

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.
