Accumen Executives Will Address Laboratory Professionals at the 22nd Annual Executive War College

Dr. Kathleen Murphy and Jeffrey H. Myers slated to share models and effective strategies for hospital and health system clinical laboratories

SAN DIEGO, CA, April 28, 2017 – Accumen executives Dr. Kathleen Murphy and Jeffrey H. Myers are slated to engage participants of the 22nd Annual Executive War College as faculty May 2-3, 2017 at the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans.  More than 800 senior lab executives, administrators, and pathologists at the conference will return home with knowledge, insights, and action plans necessary to keep the laboratory organization on the leading edge of clinical services and financial stability.

Murphy and Myers will serve as faculty for a master class titled “Medicare Fee Cuts Are Coming: Smart Steps Labs Can Take to Anticipate Lost Revenue, Protect Market Share, and Sustain Physician Satisfaction.”  This session is planned to educate laboratory professionals including hospital laboratory outreach program managers in anticipation of Medicare Part B fee cuts that are slated for implementation.

Attendees can anticipate a demonstration of business models and the most effective strategies and methods to apply to reduce financial impact for the laboratory and how to predict financial sustainability. Case studies of successful and underperforming laboratories will be shared to teach appropriate steps for implementation of strategies that will preserve and enhance market share while sustaining physician satisfaction despite revenue reductions.
