G2 Path Forward Symposium: The Path Forward for Pathologists and AP Labs: Developing a Business Plan for the Next Five Years

March 14, 2015:

What does the future bode for pathology groups and independent labs from a revenue point of view? As revenues continue to decline, it is imperative that your group or lab have a strategy going forward. This plan should include how to deal with new proposed mergers or relationships, managed care and ACO proposals, and revenue changes from both government and commercial payers. Those who do not have a contingency plan may not survive the next round of change. This session explores how to develop a one-, three-, and five-year contingency plan for your practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess whether and when it makes sense to merge groups and labs
  • Discuss strategies for negotiating with managed care providers and accountable care organizations
  • Get insight into the importance of developing new revenue streams
