Comment: Critical patient care decisions frequently require immediate access to important laboratory results. A community-based laboratory can provide continuity across the continuum of care benefiting patients, physicians and the health system. This concept, defined as laboratory outreach, presents the following advantages: increased hospital revenue, lower fixed cost per test, reduced excess lab capacity, faster turnaround times and lower overall costs per episode of care. The development, implementation and growth of a successful laboratory outreach program is a critical component of health system integration. This course will present a practical approach to all aspects of developing and growing a successful laboratory outreach program. Experienced faculty will share their knowledge on how a laboratory can reach its maximum potential.
