As we are all aware, the U.S. healthcare system is undergoing tremendous change. In fact, the scope of this overhaul has prompted Jeffrey Bauer, PhD, the well-known healthcare economist and futurist, to proclaim that “More change will occur in healthcare over the next 10 years than has occurred over the past 50.”

Labs need to be prepared for a fundamental shift in reimbursement and a new explosion of technology. In this can’t-miss webinar, former Mayo Medical Laboratories executive Mr. Keith Laughman proposes that chemistry and pathology labs need to borrow from the pharmaceutical industry's PharmacoEconomics and develop our own LabacoEconomics.

This webinar, Part II of the series, will build upon the LabacoEconomics rationale outlined by Mr. Laughman during Part I and provide explicit examples of this strategy at work..

Part I is available on demand on LabLeaders.com
