Ongoing healthcare system changes are requiring hospitals to reassess outreach as well as overall laboratory business models and strategy. The critical issues facing hospital labs today are unprecedented in scope and reach far beyond the lab itself to affect entire hospital systems.

  • Outreach divestiture, joint ventures, or establishment of freestanding independent subsidiaries
  • Expansion of services and market access
