From Data to Value!


This course illustrates how labs can use data to demonstrate their value in the healthcare continuum and contribute to reducing the total cost of care. Data is the tool by which labs can move out from a volume based, stagnating business model to that of a thriving, value-based business model. Before the data can be shaped in to a story that tells a tale of value, the lab has to restructure and redesign its systems that enable the collection, extraction, aggregation and interpretation of data. This course takes a systematic approach to designing systems that create value and ignite growth, with the ultimate goal of transparently positioning the lab as a strategic partner in achieving lower costs, higher quality of care and better patient engagement and satisfaction
