  • Jane Hermansen (Speaker) Manager, Outreach and Network Development Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic


With the formation of larger health systems and integrated delivery networks across the US, the role of the laboratory and integrated laboratory data remains of critical importance. What is the best way to achieve balance in local delivery of care and optimization of testing across multiple laboratories? What is most important? Delivering high quality and excellent service? Eliminating redundancy and realizing economies of scale? Can these philosophies co-exist? Patient-centered testing must remain our industry’s top priority. Further, laboratory data integrated with the patient medical record will be critical to the laboratory’s future success in alternate payment models. In this session, attendees will learn of the importance of achieving patient integration across a health system, and how to most effectively accomplish that integration.

Learning objectives:

  • Describe national trends of health system integration and identify the key role of the laboratory in achieving this integration
  • Define a laboratory integration strategy, to include internalization of testing, provider use of the health system laboratory and the power and value of integrated patient data
  • Develop a plan for integration of laboratory services across a health system which includes a strong outreach program
