Hospital laboratories play an important role in today’s complex healthcare environment. Laboratories can serve as critical strategic partners for hospitals in the areas of population health initiatives, shifting the cost curve by lowering length of stay, and even assisting with physician recruitment and retention efforts. The laboratory is oftentimes not viewed as a strategic partner by hospital administration, and through this webinar, Duane J. Fitch will provide lab leadership with examples of how the lab can be a value added partner in the overall delivery of healthcare.

What You Will Learn

  • How the Lab has an important role in the implementation of population health initiatives.

  • How Lab leadership has an important role in educating System Leadership and Medical Staff members on the availability of tests that can more quickly diagnose patients to reduce costs and improve outcomes.

  • How Hospital Labs can be an important component for overall physician recruitment and retention strategy.
