Serving the New Paradigm of Integrated Care: Convert Your Lab's Data into High-Value Clinical Intelligence

Watch the video!

From Executive War College 2013, watch Curt Johnson, Chief Operating Officer, and Dr. Michael D. Glant, Medical Director, from Orchard Software share their views and observations on the impact to the lab due to the change in healthcare from a volume-based to a value-based service model. Curt and Dr. Glant present ideas on how to think more strategically about the value that the laboratory and its diagnostic data brings into this new model. This presentation points out specific ways that the laboratory can deliver value to its facility and its customers in a value-based reimbursement world.

Orchard Software’s New White Paper: Structured Data: Essential for Healthcare Analytics & Interoperability

Imperative to value-based healthcare are analytics that measure and demonstrate outcomes and “value.” The foundation for analytics is structured data—data that can be mined and shared with other systems. Orchard has published a white paper entitled Structured Data: Essential for Healthcare Analytics & Interoperability. If you would like to understand the emphasis and importance of interoperability and structured data to facilitate precise communication throughout our healthcare system, this white paper explains types of interoperability, the importance of standards (such as LOINC and SNOMED CT), why structured data is necessary for analytics, and how it ties into synoptic reporting for pathology. Download the white paper.

The Value of the Lab in the New Healthcare Model

In an effort to empower laboratorians and give specific suggestions for ways to prosper within a value-based healthcare setting, Orchard has published a white paper entitled, The Value of the Lab in the New Healthcare Model. If you are concerned about how your laboratory will fit in the changing healthcare environment, this white paper can help you rethink your lab’s role within your organization, encourage you to become more engaged in your facility’s overall success, and help you successfully maneuver through the volume-to-value shift in the healthcare reimbursement model.
