The shift from a traditional fee-for-service model to value-based healthcare requires a completely new approach for clinical labs to help clients improve their quality of care, enhance their workflow processes, and maintain viable revenue streams.
In combination with the newly enacted PAMA reductions in reimbursement rates, it is more critical than ever for hospital, commercial, and outreach laboratories to partner with companies that have the proven competence to help them thrive in this new environment.
Your lab and care workflows depend on LIS efficiency. Scalability of the LIS determines your practice’s growth. Not to mention the ability of your LIS to capably interface with and support new technologies and new value-based Medicare Quality Payment Programs (QPPs) such as the MACRA Merit-based Incentive Payments System (MIPS). Fact is, the performance capability of your laboratory’s LIS goes way beyond its ability to participate in these new value-based care initiatives—the right LIS is critical to your practice to ensure success and increased revenue. The good news is that thanks to advances in laboratory information management systems and cloud-based technology, as a provider you now have unprecedented opportunities to better manage the health of patients, promote adherence to treatments, as well as to reduce costs.
This FREE White Paper addresses:
- Overview of the new technologies and value-based programs: their objectives, along with potential impacts to your lab
