The health insurance marketplace is experiencing significant changes, and labs must think strategically to succeed financially in the new healthcare environment. Register for this free program—the fourth in the 2015 Thought Leadership Series of webinars supported by Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics—and learn how “accountable care” and other emerging economic models in healthcare could already be affecting your lab’s business and what you can do about it.


Laboratory administrators, directors, managers and clinicians involved in any of the business or financial aspects of clinical laboratory testing.


David L. Katz, MD, JD, Principal, Executive Director, and National/International Physician Director with The Advisory Board Company, Washington, DC


The retail revolution is profoundly disrupting hospital and health system economics, chiefly through the emergence of a retail insurance market and the growth of retail shopping for healthcare (and for lab services). What adjustments should your lab make to ensure that you keep the customers you have, and continue to grow your client base for the future? What long-term impact will the Affordable Care Act have on healthcare systems and the labs that are part of those institutions? Attend this webinar and hear Dr. David Katz, an expert from the Advisory Board, discuss why and how the healthcare system is changing, and what labs can do to manage the new challenges affecting the business of laboratory testing.

After the presentation, Dr. Katz will take questions from participants.
