KEENE, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
G2 Intelligence, a 30+ year leader in research, reporting, and analysis
on the business of the diagnostic laboratory industry — including
extensive coverage of the hospital laboratory marketplace through live
events, periodicals, and proprietary research — announced today that it
will hold a convenient, one-day workshop at the Westin Atlanta Airport
on Thursday, January 30, 2014: What’s
Next for Hospital Laboratories: Operations, Outreach, and Business Models.
“Reimbursement cuts, commoditization, the inevitable transition away
from fee-for-service, shifting insurance populations, and stagnant test
volumes amidst increased test costs are among the confluence of forces
changing the face of hospital laboratories,” according to Stephanie
Murg, G2’s Managing Director and workshop program chair. “This one-day
intensive will guide participants through recent market developments,
and what these changes mean for their organizations.”
“From selecting the business model that best addresses a unique set of
clinical and financial needs, to optimizing the valuable competitive
advantages of test-related data, information technology, and innovative
programs that reduce costs, hospital-based providers of diagnostic
services must act quickly and decisively to ensure their immediate and
long-term prospects,” adds Kimberly Scott, G2’s Managing Editor and
program co-chair. With these and other urgent issues in mind, expert
faculty will also assess ways in which hospital laboratories can turn
data into actionable information that is both relevant and valuable
across the continuum of care.
