Betting on the Future of the Lab
Reimbursement and financial challenges in the game of value-based care

Recorded on: April 28, 2021 | 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT

On April 28 at 1:00pm ET, Sunquest and API continued their free virtual series for 2021 with a new webinar entitled: “Betting on the Future of the Lab. Reimbursement and Financial Challenges in the Game of Value-Based Care.”

As a laboratory professional, you know the reimbursement and financial challenges associated with laboratory testing. As we continue the move towards value-based care, laboratories need to be leaders, not laggards, in order to win. It’s time to double-down and build the right strategic game plan that delivers on the best financial and operational return for your organization, and more importantly for the delivery of higher quality care, improved patient safety and outcomes for the community served.

Lab leaders need to consider or understand the impact of:

  • Emerging payment models
  • Current state of value payment models
  • Emerging technology, such as AI
  • Lab versus centralized IT
  • Importance and awareness of laboratory data impact, regardless of source, throughout the care continuum

During this webinar, our speakers discussed what top health systems and laboratories are doing in this country to win in the value-based care game. And, they addressed the role the laboratory, and laboratory leaders play in the overall strategic goals of the health system.
