Rising reference laboratory costs are becoming one of the biggest cost containment issues in the industry.  While hospital/health system laboratories struggle to contain these costs, the situation is becoming increasingly more complex to navigate as more high-cost, esoteric tests become available.

In the 2012 G2 Intelligence report U.S. Laboratory Reference Testing:  Market Profiles and Pricing Trends, it was reported that hospital/health system laboratories:

  • Referred an average of 11 percent of their annual billaboratoryle tests to reference laboratories.
  • Spent an average of $1.6 million on reference tests in 2011, with the majority reporting cost increases over the past 12 months.

Using the proven processes outlined during this program, laboratories can achieve a 10 to 30 percent reduction in overall referral cost/operating margin, depending on their current level of managing the overall process.

With this in mind, join Chi Solutions online on August 21 as our expert speaker discusses strategies for reducing referral testing expenses and better controlling referral laboratory utilization.

At the end of this convenient, FREE 60-minute program, you will be able to:

  1. Understand various strategies laboratories are using to control rising reference laboratory costs.
  2. Understand a few essential steps your laboratory should take to control costs and a few pitfalls to avoid.
  3. Identify current gaps in your own laboratory’s approach to controlling costs/utilization and potential next steps to improve performance.

Plus, get answers to your own questions during the LIVE Q&A session immediately following the presentation. And you can invite your whole team for free—no preregistration or fees.  Just join the webinar on August 21 at 2:00 p.m. ET using the dial-in number and web conference link provided below.
