AUSTIN, Texas (November 11, 2015) — All predictions are that 2016 will be another tough year for anatomic pathology groups. Price cuts from Medicare and private payers are coming. Consolidation is causing more pathologists to become employees. Larger numbers of hospitals are carving away at Part A compensation to balance their budgets at the expense of their loyal pathologists.
“Viewed through this lens, some pathologists might say that 2016 will be the ‘worst of times’ for anatomic pathology practices,” says Robert L. Michel, Editor-in-Chief of The Dark Report. “Yet, some pathology groups are showing consistent growth in revenue that translates into more income for their pathologists. For these pathologists, it may not be the ‘best of times,’ but it certainly means increased profits that can be distributed to all partners in the group.”
During “Boosting your Pathology Lab’s Revenue in 2016: Three Essential Business and Clinical Strategies to Increase Pathologist Income,” a special 90-minute webinar taking place Tuesday, November 17 at 1 PM EST, participants will hear from two experts who regularly interact with these successful, flourishing pathology groups. Dark Daily has teamed with Robert H. Tessier, Senior Reimbursement Consultant with HBP Financial Services Group, and Mick Raich, President & CEO of Vachette Pathology, to share with pathology laboratories the clinical and financial management secrets that can propel their pathology group into this profitable circle of top-performing pathology labs.
