Leveraging the lab to successfully transform healthcare

Re-evaluating the lab as a trusted partner to help overcome top challenges

Healthcare systems worldwide face a glaring contradiction: deliver better care at lower costs. To achieve sustainable and long term success, healthcare organisations must evolve and begin to look at clinical labs as a partner. In parallel, labs must rise to the challenge.1

 

A problem shared is a problem halved

 

When asked what were the top organisational challenges facing healthcare executives and lab leaders, financial challenges were overwhelmingly the greatest concern for both groups.1 Secondary concerns were also similar and included government mandates, personnel shortages, patient safety & quality, and patient satisfaction.1

Despite these challenges, executives and lab leaders also agreed on a number of opportunities that labs uniquely have to help overcome them.The strategies can potentially help to better manage costs, stay on top of ever-changing regulations and mandates, add value by offering increased services, and decrease manual tasks for staff.
