Stories of hospital lab early adopters that have successfully implemented third-party decision support
Current events highlight the critical role of the hospital
laboratory as the primary source of diagnostic information. But legislation such as PAMA (Protecting Access to Medicare Act)
can potentially reduce lab reimbursements when clinical decision support is not used to ensure appropriate care.
This audiobook provides front-line perspective and commentary from experts and physicians at Mayo Clinic Laboratory on the application of clinical decision support technology in the lab. It also includes data from early adopters in hospital laboratories that have successfully implemented third-party decision support to achieve their stewardship goals, including electronic health record (EHR) interventions, and ongoing monitoring of utilization.
