Efficiencies will contribute to improved patient care outcomes and cost savings.
Orchard Software and Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS) are partnering to use advanced IT solutions to map complex laboratory workflows to maximize efficiency and reduce waste, increasing Marshfield Labs’ ability to contribute to improved patient care outcomes and cost savings.
The laboratory represents only about three percent of healthcare costs, but when it is used properly, it can impact downstream costs far beyond the cost of performing lab tests. Laboratorians are encouraged to see the value of the information they are processing and to become active participants in analytics that advance the value of lab information.
