The Strategic Impact of Laboratory Services in a Value-Based Environment

Sponsored by

Hospitals and health systems are trying to find their way in an industry rich with payment reform, changing care models, mergers and acquisitions, and increased consumerism. Healthcare executives are tasked with finding solutions to these challenges to enable organizations to remain financially viable while delivering high quality care across the continuum.

To meet these goals, one clinical service area that executives should take into account when developing strategic plans is laboratory diagnostic services. While some organizations may see laboratory services as a commodity, and prefer to outsource them, others see the lab as an opportunity. Investment in lab capabilities—including emerging technology around molecular, genetic, and other pathologies—can improve patient care by making it more precise while providing a competitive advantage for hospitals and health systems by capitalizing on the data created in a systemic way.

Join us on Wednesday, January 31st at 1 pm ET where our panel will explore how executive healthcare leaders can incorporate laboratory services—particularly in conjunction with informatics and data analytics technology—into their strategic plans to differentiate service lines, improve clinical and financial outcomes, and reshape healthcare delivery in a value-based purchasing environment.

Strategies for Building a Value-Based Physician Network

Sponsored by
Change Healthcare

In an attempt to rein in the unsustainable rise in healthcare spending, some integrated health systems and some payers, including Medicare, have been rolling out incentives for increasing the value of their services.

While many healthcare organizations are participating in, or planning for the shift from fee-for-service to value based care, the pace of this evolution varies greatly. In some respects, this radical change in business practice represents a chicken-or-egg problem for healthcare leaders. It’s tough to justify in a business sense the process of organizing for value, and all the investment and culture change that entails, when you’re not being rewarded for your efforts.

Most organizations have accepted that they need to prepare for this evolution, yet the exact strategy to implement is still in question. However, learning from others’ mistakes and experience can be invaluable.

Join Julia Andrieni, MD, FACP and Megan Harkey, MHA on Monday, November 13th at 1 pm ET as they share Houston Methodist’s blueprint for using care management, analytics and technology, and physician engagement to ease the transition.

Reserve your place today!

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the resources needed to transition from a fee-for service model to a value based care model
  • Understand how care providers can facilitate better care coordination
  • Gather patient data and draw conclusions from that data
