How Laboratory Test Utilization Strategies Can Increase Revenue and Improve Patient Outcomes

930 views

Published on

In an increasingly competitive environment in which value-based care is the foundation, the need for efficiency has become more strategic and complex. Opportunities exist to solve for both over- and underutilization, resulting in high-quality, cost-effective patient care. Reliable data is critical for the success of any utilization management initiative, from eliminating waste caused by unnecessary laboratory testing, to reducing quality lapses with send-out tests, to preventing inpatient stays by making sure tests aren’t missed.

Join Viewics as we share the outcomes of three real-world use cases, and see how our customers have improved their lab test utilization strategies.

You will learn how customers:
- Realized significant cost savings by replacing two older, unnecessary tests with one newer, more cost-effective, and diagnostically more accurate alternative
- Standardized quality medical processes, including incorrect test ordering, which wastes valuable resources and can lead to dangerous clinical interventions for patients
- Used concrete metrics to continually assess and avoid overutilization of costly lab tests

  5. 5. Why  the  Waste   Minimal  lab  training  in  Medical  School Only  9%  of  medical  schools  have  a   well-­defined  course  in  laboratory   medicine   On  average,  only  10  hours  of   medical  school  are  spent  teaching   lab  selection  and  interpretation   In  many  institutions,  training  is  less   than  5  hours “Putting  the  Patient  First  – Using  the  Expertise  of  Laboratory  Professionals  to  Produce  Rapid  and  Accurate  Diagnoses”   – Laposata,  Michael  MD,  PhD
