Many laboratory and hospital administrators are seeing budgets stretched to the limit as they struggle to make ends meet in an economy that has been turned upside-down. As unemployment reaches record highs and the numbers of uninsured and underinsured increase, all health care providers are facing trends that adversely affect reimbursement. The economic news is discouraging, but that does not mean that the future is bleak.
During this timely one-hour webinar, two executives from the Henry Ford Health System, an organization known for its innovation in caring for a population that has endured great economic difficulties, will share what they have learned about how to ‘weather’ an economic downturn. During this webinar, John Waugh, MS, MT (ASCP), Director, System Laboratory Operations at the Henry Ford Health System and Thomas Nantais, MBA, Chief Operating Officer at the Henry Ford Medical Group will discuss management techniques that can be used to optimize hospitals’ and laboratories’ performances during difficult economic time including where to look for growth opportunities in today’s environment. They will also outline strategies for streamlining laboratory systems and managing the revenue cycle and supply chain to reduce spending and preserve margins.
This webinar is a ‘must attend’ event for any journalist reporting on the implications of the current economic condition for laboratory medicine and health systems.
