Chapter 7 : The Changing Healthcare Environment

MyBook is a cheap paperback edition of the original book and will be sold at uniform, low price.

Abstract:

This chapter provides a historical overview of reimbursement for laboratory services from 1969 to the present. It presents an outline of healthcare reform and its impact on the industry stakeholders. Value-based healthcare models share the following common elements: management of distinct patient populations; delivery of coordinated care through integrated networks of providers; focus on patient outcomes using evidence-based practices; use of health information technology for measuring, managing, and reporting quality; and focus on costs of providing healthcare. The chapter helps the reader to learn about special issues related to contracting for managed care, including prospective payment, capitation, and providing service with payment caps, learn the risks related to each of these challenges, and discuss the challenges ahead as the industry responds to healthcare reform. It aims to provide an understanding of the impact of educated and informed consumers, patients, providers, insurers, and employers on the delivery of healthcare, and to learn about how consumer-driven healthcare impacts the industry. The chapter also helps the reader to understand the impact of technological advances, home health devices, and genetic information, and learn how technology is driving personalized medicine, and to understand how society is becoming increasingly litigious. To succeed in the future, hospital administration, employees, and physicians must develop an appreciation for each other’s culture, values, beliefs, language, and goals. Finally, the chapter facilitates in learning about how consolidation among providers and vendors is driving reengineering and restructuring, and in understanding how healthcare reform is fueling consolidation among all stakeholders.

Evolution toward regional laboratory system. In a network model, independent laboratories affiliate under a network organization without any consolidation. In a consolidation model, two or more laboratories consolidate core operations to one primary site operating rapid access operations in remote sites. In a regional laboratory system, a hybrid operation is formed with participants from academic medical center laboratories, a commercial laboratory partner, and participating consolidated hospital laboratory models.
