(Chi), a leader in clinical laboratory consulting and management for more than thirty years, announced today that Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Financial Services Jeff Myers will present “Dealing with New Patient Payment Requirements from Private Payers: What Hospital Labs Need to Know and Effective Methods to Improve Collections” at the 20th Anniversary Executive War College Conference on Laboratory & Pathology Management on May 5 and 6 at the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana.
In a fifty-minute session scheduled for Wednesday, May 6 at 7:00 a.m., Mr. Myers will discuss the past, present, and future impact of patient out-of-pocket costs on the hospital laboratory as well as methods for improving collections and new requirements from private payers.
