Lowering Cost and Improving Care

Accelerated by the Affordable Care Act, health care reform is challenging health care providers in new and dramatic ways. To ensure our partner institutions are prepared to meet the evolving demands of payers and patients, we are championing the critical role of community-based laboratories in optimizing test utilization and reducing the total cost of care for health care organizations and their patients.
