NEW  PM106  Live or Let Die: Clinical Informatics as a Transformative Discipline for Pathologists in the New Era of Value-Based Health Care

Tuesday, October 15
8:00–11:30 AM

System Based Practice Practice-Based Learning and Improvement

Accountable care organizations, bundled payments, and value-based purchasing are emerging health care fiscal reforms. While pathology and clinical laboratory services account for less than 5% of health plan costs, their effect on clinical care is far greater. Clinical informatics will be crucial for making data-driven decisions in these new health care models. By taking ownership of clinical informatics within your organization, attendees will be able to more effectively demonstrate their professional value and be better prepared to drive improvements in clinical quality and cost management. Learn the concepts necessary to demonstrate leadership in clinical informatics working with teams of colleagues, clinicians, analysts, and informaticists via a case-based approach.
