An obvious source of more outpatient business are your own physicians - employed and independent docs, particularly those actively involved in patient centered medical home initiatives. Why? Well there is a great deal of emphasis being placed upon evidence-based preventive screening and treatment which has lots of potential implications for hospital out patient labs, specialists and referral programs like Diabetic/Nutritional counseling, behavioral health and so on. The point is that 1) your doctors are probably not screening as many patients as they should be and 2) they may not be sending referrals to you.
