Medicare's focus on Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) has caused hospitals to create clinical teams in order to provide more coordinated patient care. The laboratory needs to play an important role in such teams. This session will describe several successful efforts in which clinical laboratories led formation of an effective team to improve quality of patient care and reduce cost. It also offers suggestions for how this success may be replicated in other organizations.
