harnessing-real-time-analytics-white-paper-the-dark-report-and-VisiunMedical laboratories and pathology groups are facing enormous levels of change in their clinical, regulatory and financial environments. As the Affordable Care Act is implemented, laboratories see downward pressure on reimbursement at both the federal and payer level, coupled with increased emphasis on efficiency and quality. Couple that with a shift from fee-for-service reimbursement to fee-for-quality reimbursement strategies, and clinical laboratories and pathology groups are pushed to find tools to increase their competitiveness.

Medical laboratories and pathology groups are increasingly looking at business intelligence software to provide a competitive edge. This technology allows laboratories to draw on the wealth of business, logistical and medical data inherent in their laboratory information systems (LIS), enabling them to more effectively make changes to improve workflow, increase efficiency, and identify, evaluate, and solve problems as they are occurring.

The Dark Report is pleased to offer a recently published FREE White Paper about how laboratories can draw on the wealth of business, logistical and medical data inherent in their laboratory information systems (LIS) to more effectively make changes to improve workflow, increase efficiency, and identify, evaluate, and solve problems as they are occurring. This paper will address current trends in health care and the clinical laboratory testing marketplace, deficiencies in today’s generation of medical laboratory information systems, how lab-focused business analytics can be applied to Lean quality processes, and provide in-depth case studies of clinical laboratories utilizing business software solutions to meet those goals. The white paper is titled: “Harnessing the Power of Real-Time Analytics to Achieve World Class Performance in Clinical Laboratories and Pathology Groups: How innovative medical laboratories can combine analytics with medical laboratory information systems to improve lab operations, cut costs, and boost productivity.

Along with other topics, this FREE White Paper specifically addresses:

  • Current trends in health care and the clinical laboratory testing marketplace
  • The deficiencies in today’s generation of medical laboratory information systems
  • How laboratory-focused business analytics can be applied to Lean quality processes, and more….
