    Abstract

    As hospitals and healthcare systems move toward value-based care, new management systems are needed to measure and improve clinical processes.  This presents both an opportunity and a challenge for laboratories to move beyond internally-facing perspectives and become better integrated into improving clinical care.  The categories of an ideal measurement system would include cost, patient benefit, and performance quality.  Each of these should be assessed at multiple layers of granularity, from executive summary down to individual item.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Identify measures of cost, patient benefit and quality that can together create a comprehensive view of clinical laboratory performance
    • Identify which of these measures are feasible today versus requiring future research.
