Accumen Executive to Address PAMA and Clinical Laboratory Outreach at G2 Intelligence Lab Leadership Summit

Jeffrey H. Myers, Vice President of Consulting to Facilitate Key Sessions on Reimbursement Topics for Hospital and Health System Laboratory Professionals

SAN DIEGO, CA, November 20, 2017 – Accumen Inc. is pleased to announce that Jeffrey H. Myers, CPA, Vice President of Consulting, will serve as faculty at the G2 Lab Reimbursement Summit on Friday, December 8, 2017, in Atlanta, Georgia.  In an intensive, one-day event that is part of a series of G2 Intelligence Lab Leadership Summits, participants will engage in conversation on practical strategies to maximize reimbursement revenue under new rules resulting from the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA).  These rules have created new challenges for clinical laboratory professionals in hospitals and health systems to navigate as market forces require forward-thinking strategic management.

Mr. Myers will facilitate morning and afternoon sessions at this event centered on PAMA’s effect on clinical laboratory reimbursement and the current and future states of the laboratory in this new environment.  In the morning, he will share the latest news on PAMA and legal and lobbying efforts regarding the legislation, as well as examine the prospective impact on managed care reimbursements for hospitals and health systems.  His afternoon session will focus on what’s next for clinical laboratories, examining future strategic options that organizations can take to maximize revenue and manage costs in response to changes ushered in by PAMA.

Mr. Myers has spoken about PAMA and other key topics at numerous leading, clinical laboratory industry events and has more than 20 years of experience in healthcare financial management and administration.  In his role as Vice President of Consulting, he oversees strategic consulting and laboratory outreach engagements.  He also provides expertise in benchmarking and analytics, operations improvement, and revenue growth for hospital-based laboratories.  Prior to joining Chi Solutions, Inc., an Accumen company, he held executive- and director-level finance positions with the laboratory divisions of two prominent academic health systems in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast, where his skilled fiscal leadership produced significant margin, cost, productivity, and revenue cycle process improvements.  A Certified Public Accountant, Mr. Myers graduated from the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and Business Law.
