Provider silos of the previous decades are giving way to integrated health networks where various providers serve single and sometimes multiple entities. As independent laboratories, hospitals, and health systems enhance their network of providers—including numerous clinical laboratory and anatomic pathology practice partners, or M&A activities—directors and managers must embrace moving from a disjointed data infrastructure system to value-added connectivity.

Connecting multiple order sources, such as physician EMRs or other laboratories and their LIS, into a laboratory network has become a new operational imperative. The core of this call to action is better test routing and sharing and, even more importantly, accelerating clean lab service orders from all order sources. This aims to improve turnaround time, especially in STAT and other urgent situations, improve physician and patient satisfaction, and ensure timely reimbursement for testing.

Where traditional clinical laboratory operations fall short of these types of advanced connectivity goals, the effects are profound, ranging from delays in patient testing on the front end to rejected claims for reimbursement on the back end.

During the free October 6 webinar, Accelerating Lab Order Connectivity for Measurable ROI: Support for Multi-Lab Networks, hosted by Dark Daily and sponsored by Sunquest, will explain the current landscape and growth of clinical laboratory testing networks and what it means for clinical, anatomic, specialized and esoteric testing.
