The Year of the Lab:  Impact during COVID-19

 

March 24, 2021 | 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT

The COVID-19 pandemic stressed many segments of the U.S. healthcare enterprise, not the least of which has been clinical laboratories who have dealt with lack of available assays and other supply chain issues, regulatory challenges, shifting and virtual workload, and more. However, in-system laboratories across the country rose to the occasion, providing critical diagnoses for COVID and other health conditions, and enabled their healthcare systems to continue to provide care, with immense clinical and financial impact.  IT support for these efforts was significant, and included documentation and billing of test results, EMR alerts, data management, and interaction with public health labs and health system executives.

We need to reflect on this past year, recognize the fundamental impact of the lab on our healthcare systems, and prepare ourselves for the future.  Lessons from this year will help us prepare for future viral pandemics, as well as improve the delivery of standard healthcare.   Dr. Karen Kaul will address these and other points in her lecture and will also respond to questions put to her by the virtual audience.

Betting on the future of the Lab. Reimbursement and financial challenges in the game of value-based care

April 28, 2021 | 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT

As a laboratory professional, you know the reimbursement and financial challenges associated with laboratory testing. As we continue the move towards value-based care, laboratories need to be leaders, not laggards, in order to win. It’s time to double-down and build the right strategic game plan that delivers on the best financial and operational return for your organization, and more importantly for the delivery of higher quality care, improved patient safety and outcomes for the community served.

Lab leaders need to consider or understand the impact of:

 
  • Emerging payment models
  • Current state of value payment models
  • Emerging technology, such as AI
  • Lab versus centralized IT
  • Importance and awareness of laboratory data impact, regardless of source, throughout the care continuum
