Clinical Studies & Better Outcomes

The Advent of Molecular Diagnostics has led to the following Improvements in Patient Care

  • Rapid identification of causative pathogens

  • More targeted treatment options

  • Better outcomes

Grow Your Practice

Physicians and group medical practices rely on the Stark law’s in-office ancillary services exception rule and physician services exceptions to allow "within-practice" DHS referrals, to include laboratory testing.  This exception allows providers in group practices to:

  • Make in-office lab referrals

  • Bill Medicare & Medicaid

  • Retain and use these revenues for group practice expenses and physician compensation  



Discovery Phase

Includes a review of the group practice metrics, a feasibility study to understand the needs and financial viability of the medical group practice for a physician office laboratory (POL)

Planning & Design

Planning Includes site reviews and selection, instrument and equipment needs and personnel sourcing , job descriptions and selection.  Lab Design includes instrument and equipment placement, work flow and information systems. 

Pre-Launch Project Management

  • Regulatory review

  • CLIA certification and compliance

  • Sourcing of a Lab Director

  • CLIA inspection preparation

  • Personnel training

Laboratory Operations & Oversight
