The Strategic Impact of Laboratory Services in a Value-Based Environment
In an industry rich with payment reform, changing care models, mergers and acquisitions, and increased consumerism, healthcare executives are tasked with finding solutions to enable organizations to remain financially viable while delivering high-quality care across the continuum.

While some organizations opt to outsource laboratory services, others see the lab as an area for investment and growth, giving hospitals and health systems an advantage over competitors.
In this executive roundtable, panelists from Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare, Northwell Health, OhioHealth, and Catholic Medical Center discussed how can support an organization’s strategic plans, influence clinical and financial outcomes, and reshape healthcare delivery in a value-based purchasing environment.
