Laboratory/Clinician Stewardship Results in Cost Savings and Improved Patient Care

Cleveland Clinic’s Laboratory Stewardship Committee uses a multidisciplinary team approach that draws upon resources and personnel within the hospital information system, laboratory, and clinical staff to improve patient care. Laboratory test utilization initiatives introduced since 2011 have saved the Cleveland Clinic $5.0 million—the cost avoidance in 2017 alone was more than $835,000.
