Over the past decade, U.S. Health Care Reform has been driving significant change in the way care is organized, financed, and delivered. The mission of health care reform is to completely transform the current volume-based delivery model into a value-based (or evidence-based) system.
Laboratory testing plays an essential role in health care. It is estimated that 70-80% of all medical decisions are based on laboratory results.1 Despite this scope of influence, spending on laboratory services accounts for only 2.3% of total U.S. health care expenditures.2 The notion that laboratory medicine provides high clinical value at a relatively low cost is the blueprint for change.
With Medicare and private reimbursements shrinking, health care providers are searching for alternative revenue sources to help sustain and grow their practice. Using a patient-centered approach, Clinical Laboratory Consultants can help health care professionals identify, implement, and optimize a medical laboratory to enhance both their quality of care and bottom-line performance.
