Reducing inappropriate laboratory testing isn’t just a strategic goal—it’s a financial necessity. With a constant flow of new medical information influencing test ordering practices, patterns of test use continually change, making it difficult for labs to achieve overall cost savings. Sound strategies are needed to make real progress in reducing inappropriate testing.

During this must-attend webinar on March 18, 1:00-1:30 pm Eastern (U.S.) time, our expert will share what’s making a difference in his hospital, and discuss methods that any lab can use to help control utilization.

In just 30-minutes you will learn:

  • How to automatically pinpoint unnecessary panels that are repeatedly being ordered.
  • How to ensure the right test at the right time – every time.
  • Ways to guide physician behavior and assist in delivering an improved patient experience.
