Lab professionals and healthcare organizations face ever-increasing pressure to manage more samples, deliver the highest-quality results - fast - and increase profitability.
Global healthcare costs continue to rise with spending projected to increase from approximately USD $8.45 trillion in 2018 to USD $10 trillion by 2022.1 Labs are expected to do more with less, increase efficiencies and productivity while also navigating a constantly changing landscape of regulations and data protection and privacy laws.
Diagnostics play a leading role in both disease prevention and management and influence approximately two-thirds of all clinical decision-making, despite accounting for only about 2% of total healthcare spending.2
Roche understands the value of the clinical laboratory within the broader healthcare ecosystem and through digitalization is committed to developing innovative solutions to help labs and clinicians meet the needs of today and the future.
With digitalization, the lab has an opportunity to provide value in healthcare beyond the diagnostic sample result. Working in partnership, Roche can help labs manage their data for insights to better inform patient and operational decision-making.

While new technology brings far-reaching opportunities, equipment is another opportunity for sustainable gains: Redesigning the lab and aligning work processes can boost lab performance. Roche is harnessing the power of data analytics and workflow integration to gain insights to revolutionize the current healthcare standard.
Roche provides personalised consultancy from the first assessment through implementation and beyond. Labs can help improve patient care with more efficient management of data - both operational and clinical - and turn that data into actionable insights for fact-based decision-making for clinicians and patients.
