Promising Practice Pathways™ describes new pathologist-driven services and programs that add clinical value outside of the laboratory by improving downstream clinical quality and outcomes and generating downstream clinical cost savings. They span a broad range of clinical conditions and procedures, with some of the most interesting opportunities in oncology and infectious disease. The pathways speak to how pathologists can begin offering value-generating services in order to truly participate as a peer in the value-based health care market.
“We must demonstrate we can generate cost savings through the value of our services rather than through cutting our services. As many in the industry say these days, ‘If you’re not at the table, then you’re on the table.’”
