Health Care Reform and the Lab: Three Keys to Survival in 2014

July 11th, 2013

Kathleen Murphy, PhD, CEO of Chi Solutions, and Rodney Forsman, Immediate Past President, CLMA; Assistant Professor Emeritus, Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic; are presenting a webinar regarding Health Care Reform and the Laboratory:  Three Keys to Survival in 2014.

Prepare your organization for the role laboratories will play in the new health care system.

In 2014, when the bulk of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is implemented, as many as 30 million Americans who did not have insurance before will begin to obtain coverage, either through individual plans purchased in the state exchanges or through Medicaid. Many new enrollees who have gone without basic preventive care for years are going to require diagnostic laboratory tests and follow-up care.  Plus the ACA is encouraging the creation of hundreds of accountable care organizations (ACOs) throughout the country.

Laboratories will need to develop value-based initiatives if they are to get a seat at the ACO table and ensure they get a piece of the shared-savings pie going forward.

With this in mind, join Dr. Murphy and Mr. Forsman for this G2 Intelligence hosted event, online, July 11, from 2:00-3:30pm ET as our expert speakers discuss the future of the laboratory sector under the ACA and what laboratories need to do to survive and even thrive in this fast-changing environment.

At the end of this convenient 90-minute program, you will be able to accomplish three critical goals:

  1. Understand the business advantages offered by the ACA and understand the importance of developing value-based initiatives.
  2. Better prepare for market changes under health care reform and shared savings arrangements.
  3. Identify ways your laboratory can get a seat at the ACO table and function within an ACO structure.
