This is a recorded version of the AACC webinar Improving Test Utilization: The Clinical Lab's Expanding Role, initially held December 14, 2011. As hospitals continue to squeeze as much waste as possible from their budgets, many are asking their labs to play a vital role in minimizing unnecessary testing. In addition, the overutilization of tests has been identified as a potential patient safety issue. During this program, Dr. Michael Astion discusses the root causes of overutilization and how to identify them in your lab, and suggests interventions that lead to effective results.
