Orchard The_Value_of_the_Lab-1A new white paper by Kim Futrell, MT (ASCP), Orchard Software, Carmel, Indiana, takes a hard look at the the conundrum of whether onsite labs will continue to offer value as we move from a fee-for-service reimbursement model to one that’s value-based, and explores key issues stemming from this sea change.

How is health care reform redefining the value that internal labs provide? How can labs boost their overall value and what role can they play in improving patient care? How will changes ushered in by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) affect pathologists and lab professionals?

The white paper answers these questions and others voiced with increasing frequency and urgency, and provides actionable steps labs can take to embrace value-based care and help to ensure their invaluable role in providing it.

Futrell has 20-plus years of lab management experience.
