Accumen Executive to Present Alternatives to Laboratory Acquisition

Cindy Murphy Will Host Webinar: Why Labs? Why Now?

September 19, 2016

SAN DIEGO, September 19, 2016  Cindy Murphy, MPH Vice President of Healthcare Strategy & Performance Excellence for Accumen, Inc. is slated to present a webinar for customers and guests of McKesson Business Performance Services for Pathology and Laboratories on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at 2 PM EST.  In a web-based, one and a half hour session, Murphy will address the potential opportunity that exists in a common market challenge for health system clinical laboratories given today’s climate of declining reimbursements and cost reductions.

As hospital and health system executives continue to seek out opportunities to create efficiency and new revenue sources that impact the bottom line, the laboratory provides a hidden area of opportunity. While selling the hospital or health system-based laboratory may be considered as a strategy to monetize the asset for a one-time payout yet continue to offer service, it is important to weigh all options for long-term outcomes.  As the most scalable department within a health system, the clinical laboratory is both integral to delivery of quality patient care, and has capacity to generate significant new revenue.

Attendees of the session will benefit as Murphy will provide information on the process needed to create and enhance value in the clinical laboratory as a strategic asset for health systems, identifying six key areas of focus to help secure the strategic value of the laboratory. The framework is a transformational blueprint for laboratories in terms of delivering improved patient safety, quality, service and growth, while also reducing cost and optimizing productivity levels. Murphy is a nationally recognized speaker and published author in Laboratory Transformation, Healthcare Reform and Patient-Centered Care.
