Is your laboratory ready to cope with our nation’s economic turmoil? Collapse of the financial markets has already undermined hospital/health system finances. Check out this news story: “U.S. hospital profits fall to zero – Thomson Reuters,” published just days ago on March 2, 2009.

In the midst of this unprecedented economic chaos, the new president and the new Congress are declaring their intent to makeover healthcare according to their vision! Collectively, these developments threaten the financial integrity of every clinical laboratory and pathology group in the United States.

Lab administrators and pathologists need insights, strategies, and practical advice to batten down their laboratories and weather these unprecedented economic storms. You will find all this and more at the 14th annual Executive War College on Laboratory and Pathology Management, scheduled for April 28-29, 2009 at the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This year’s Executive War College is all about surviving and thriving in tough economic times! Once again, we are first in the lab industry to provide unique, valuable information and insights on the most troubling management issues confronting your laboratories today. More than 58 speakers have the solutions, warnings, and ideas you need to guide your laboratory and pathology group through the coming chaos.

We’ve just released the entire program, speakers, and topics-the full Executive War College agenda is ready for you to review.

To give you the new political lay of the land, we have Beltway insiders ready to offer insights about the new power channels in Washington, DC, and the likely shape of healthcare reform.

To provide you with solid approaches to controlling costs while improving your lab’s value proposition to physicians and payers, we are presenting experts in clinical lab operations, billing and collections, histology work flow redesign, and managed care contracting.

To shape your accurate understanding of economic forces, political trends, and likely paths of healthcare reform, we offer presentations by some of the leading thinkers in the laboratory industry.

Finally, a word about budgets. With healthcare providers rolling back spending, we know your institution is restricting educational travel. That is why this year’s Executive War College is a compelling value proposition. You’ll gain the knowledge, confidence, and ideas you need to save tens of thousands of dollars in coming months. You’ll learn the most effective strategies for increasing specimen volume and expanding revenue and market share during this economic malaise. And all this encyclopedia of lab management wisdom comes at the amazingly low cost of $15.43 per speaker!

Survival during uncertain times such as these requires information, up-to-date intelligence, and interaction with people who have answers. Executive War College 2009 offers you all three and arms you with the tools you need to guide your laboratory through the perilous events to come.
