Here's an invaluable "how to" day that teaches your lab team how to tap the gold rush for lab test data that's funded by pharma, CROs, researchers, and other healthcare entities. It's a two-for-one payoff because you'll also learn how to repurpose your lab's PCR automation to perform other assays, thus generating additional revenue and capturing new market share. Case studies by laboratories successfully selling their COVID-19 specimens and lab test data to pharma and bioresearch entities will give you and your team a useful roadmap. Other sessions describe the type of network platform and information technology capabilities needed to successfully work with these buyers of lab specimens. This is essential knowledge for all labs that would like to develop a new stream of revenue from their lab data and lab specimens.

Across the nation, health plans continue to enact policies that require labs to spend more time and resources to submit claims, respond to denials, and get fair reimbursement for their diagnostic tests. Here is a knowledge-packed single-day workshop organized with a single goal: to help you and your lab’s coding, billing, and collections team improve productivity, cut costs, and increase net collected revenue. 

Join us to get the essential knowledge you can use to help your lab generate hundreds of thousands more dollars of collected revenue this year from the same volume of claims you submit to health plans! At the same time, you’ll learn about new RCM services and products that incorporate artificial intelligence to eliminate manual steps, increase accuracy, and produce a larger portion of clean claims that are speedily paid at first submission. 

This unique workshop will include the following session topics below. We will also be updating with the speakers who will be presenting on each topic.
