As our healthcare system continues to evolve, the way that laboratories provide value is also shifting. True to our mission, Orchard Software understands the importance of keeping laboratory professionals informed. We continue to develop our informational white paper series with the laboratory in mind. Below are summaries of the latest additions downloadable from www.orchardsoft.com/whitepapers.
Total Cost of Ownership for a Laboratory Information System
In today’s evolving healthcare market, it is important to make fully informed investments. Calculating Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) helps you think through costs that are not as transparent as the initial purchase price, providing a more complete picture that can help you make an informed decision about the LIS that best fits your budget and your laboratory. This white paper is a great resource for any laboratory that is researching its next big purchase decision or trying to understand total costs throughout the system lifecycle.
A Personal Journey: Understanding the Value of Medical Analytics
Medical Analytics is a powerful tool that not only helps laboratories bring additional value to patient care but also contributes to organization-wide opportunities for savings. Read about Dr. Thomas Novicki’s personal journey building a medical analytics program and utilizing it to uncover significant waste through two pilot projects he led at the Marshfield Clinic Laboratory.
Extending the Laboratory’s Reach to Meet Healthcare’s New Paradigm
To stay relevant in the transition to value-based healthcare, laboratories must find new ways to demonstrate their value. Increase your lab’s contribution and learn how to position your lab for success through collaborative interaction with finance, IT, and key decision makers. This white paper teaches laboratorians important financial and IT concepts that can benefit laboratory professionals in cross-departmental collaborative analytics projects to improve care and save healthcare dollars.
