The Challenge

FUNDING REMAINS CONSTRAINED

Across the United States, healthcare organizations are challenged with escalating costs, reduced resources and decreased funding, which make it even more difficult to deliver quality services to a broad patient population. In order to control costs while maintaining a high quality of care, providers are looking to:

  • Generate efficiency gains
  • Eliminate waste
  • Optimize processes
  • Drive the appropriate utilization of resources

The Solution

 

New approaches to shaping care

Integrating diagnostic information into the patient-care pathway is helping many health care organizations reduce the total cost of delivering care. With-patient testing:

  • Brings insights closer to care
  • Drives efficiency and streamlines workflow
  • Increases access to care
  • Facilitates decisions that can optimize patient and economic outcomes
  • Enhances the care delivery experience
