Approaches to Controlling Healthcare Costs in the Clinical Laboratory
The cost of clinical laboratory testing has been increasing along with other types of healthcare costs. Dr. Jonathan Tait of the University of Washington evaluates the factors contributing to the growth in costs, and discusses the responsibilities of providers, patients, and third-party payers for controlling costs. He gives specific examples of testing policies that can control costs without sacrificing quality, particularly in the high-growth area of genetic testing. Jonathan Tait, MD, PhD, P
