Creating Partnerships With Patients In Mind

To address the issues among hospitals of rising costs, tighter regulations, labor shortages, low reimbursements and the constant pressure to improve quality and safety, PAML has succeeded in developing a nationally recognized Laboratory Outreach Program that partners’ with community-based hospitals.

Our Laboratory Outreach Program is a way for existing hospital-based labs to grow their business by garnering a greater share of a currently aligned physicians' test ordering and by attracting the work of physicians not previously using the hospital laboratory for routine or esoteric testing.

Benefits

At PAML, we believe healthcare delivery is a local issue. By partnering with local laboratories, we are able to compete effectively with the national laboratory systems. This gives our partners a competitive advantage, keeps costs down, and improves quality and service to physicians and patients.
Partnering with local laboratories also allows the hospitals to increase their testing volume and productivity, while lowering the inpatient testing costs.

 

Custom Programs

Our partnerships with hospitals range in scope and complexity from simple testing relationships to full LLC joint ventures - combining inpatient and outpatient testing. Rather than offer only a “one size fits all” approach to outreach services, we work with hospitals to custom-tailor programs that fit the unique needs of the local market.
