Unleash the value of your clinical laboratory with CareTinuum Advisors.
Are You Generating Maximum Value From Your Clinical Laboratory?
If not, you're leaving opportunities on the table
Many healthcare systems undervalue, underutilize, or outsource their clinical laboratory — even though it is a powerful value center if positioned correctly in the health system. Clinical laboratories can:
- Increase revenue and decrease costs
- Decrease length of stay and unplanned 30-day readmissions
- Improve patient outcomes and experiences
- Produce curated powerful standardized patient-centric data
- Support value-based care and new care delivery models
- Enhance staff support and decrease staff frustrations
A clinical laboratory can be a revenue generator and a patient experience optimizer, yet many healthcare systems aren't fully reaping these benefits. CareTinuum Advisors actively guides healthcare systems to recognize and realize these opportunities.

Clinical Laboratory Consulting
EXPERTISE + HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE + COLLABORATION = RESULTS
CareTinuum Advisors collaborates with health system executives and laboratory leadership colleagues to leverage the clinical laboratory's unique role in healthcare delivery.
Our engagements address the laboratory’s growth opportunities and the underutilization, overutilization, and misutilization of tests that often leads to patient care variation. These approaches create benefits for the entire healthcare organization resulting in increased operating margins and reduced episode of care costs.
Typical Initial Engagements
Work with leadership teams to identify healthcare system priorities. Define the laboratory of the future requirements and laboratory growth strategies that align with larger organizational goals and lead to incremental and new opportunities.
Business Case Development
Conduct a deeper laboratory review. Perform an operational and service level review (pre/post-analytical and laboratory operations) to identify possible resource needs and develop implementation and execution plans to optimize the benefits associated with the approved growth strategies and maximize the chances for success.
Audit and optimize test ordering patterns to identify misutilization, overutilization, and underutilization of clinical laboratory testing to reduce patient care variation. Develop approaches to reduce unnecessary delays in care and reduce episode of care costs through the provision of enhanced diagnostic laboratory support resulting in more efficient and more expedient care.
