Analyzing laboratory ordering to manage misutilization and reduce unnecessary spend

Healthcare is riddled with costly inefficiencies, and laboratory utilization is no exception. This analysis of more than 3.4 million tests ordered between September and November 2021 found nearly 8 percent were deemed inappropriate. Before healthcare organizations can address inefficient laboratory utilization, they must first identify where it's most likely to occur and what improvements will have the greatest impact.

This report examines ~3.4 million provider ordering transactions to offer healthcare leaders a unique glimpse into laboratory utilization trends and opportunities to decrease clinically inappropriate laboratory ordering and unnecessary spend:
  • Review ordering trends that are the driving sources of inappropriate laboratory utilization
  • Understand the effect of inappropriate ordering on the laboratory's financial health
  • Learn how to identify large financial and clinical wins across the spectrum of testing from genetics to daily labs.
