“Labs can expect information exchange and advanced levels of interconnectivity will continue to grow as a must have to do business looking forward. All clients, including but not limited to providers, hospitals, payers, and patients, will increasingly demand access to health information that is electronic and easy to use. This will include HIE platforms, patient portals, middleware and other client relationship management tools.” – Excerpted from, Clinical Informatics in the Laboratory: The New Value Generator

It’s now clear that, in order for any individual provider, clinician or institution, pathologist or lab to generate financial gains for their organization, patient health information must be leveraged.

The health care market paradigm has changed to one that is aiming to mandate value-based care and reimburse based on demonstrated improved outcomes and reduction of costs.

A data-driven model, this new paradigm means that adopting effective clinical informatics — especially lab clinical informatics — will be of utmost importance. Clinical informatics can be optimized for managing care at both the individual patient and population levels through using a variety of value tools such as:

  • Decision support reminders
  • Quality metrics (e.g. red flags, follow-up reminders)
  • Risk analysis
  • Care monitoring

As both a resource and guide, Clinical Informatics in the Laboratory from G2 Intelligence aims to answer the “why-to” and “how-to” questions surrounding this shift.

It provides an in-depth analysis of several clinical informatics value tools, assessing innovative, data-driven solutions as they relate to the conundrum of generating financial value in a highly complex, somewhat nebulous reform-driven health care environment.

Plus, G2 evaluates innovative, new value-based informatics opportunities for labs according to their strategic strength and potential for lowering costs and increasing savings.

  • Explanation and analysis of the value-driven market framework for clinical informatics
  • Current status of Health Information Technology (HIT) infrastructure systems adoption, such as electronic health records (EHR) and LIS (Laboratory Information Systems) health care industry wide, with:
    • Analysis of impact of key barriers to adoption
    • Analysis of key drivers/areas of focus for adoption
    • Adoption rates for EHR/EMR in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) versus hospitals
    • The impact that ACO entities are having on the adoption of HIT
  • New clinical informatics tools that are critical to compensation and reimbursement for labs
  • Market share analysis for HIT systems and CI tools for short-term, acute-care hospitals

New roles in advanced data analysis and clinical informatics are an ideal fit for labs and pathologists who are already experts in disease pathways and diagnostic science — and who have access to vast amounts of diagnostic patient data.
