ASCP 2013 Chicago Seeks Solutions to Optimize Clinical Services and Improve Patient Care
Date:9/23/2013

ught to continue the dialogue about effective test utilization and to educate practitioners about the leadership role they can play in their communities to help eliminate unnecessary testing.

Dr. Procop led the Cleveland Clinic on multiple initiatives and pilot programs targeting reduced test utilization over the past year that have cumulatively resulted in cost avoidance of more than $1.3 million this past year alone. He advocated for more intervention by the medical community in hopes that it will result in fewer unnecessary tests, lower costs, and fewer false positive test results.

Dr. Jeter is currently leading the MoIDx program, based on a partnership between the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Palmetto, which is intended to develop a process to identify every molecular assay and consider whether they have clinical utility (i.e., not only do they do what they promise, but the results positively influence patient care). Both panelists reiterated the importance of the dual aim to reduce costs while trying to achieve optimal outcomes for patients. Dr. Jeter further emphasized the increasing urgency behind the fulfillment of this initiative, noting that, “as the spectrum of clinical testing expands, the laboratory is able to offer patients and providers an increasing menu of tests. As tests are developed, it is important for pathology and laboratory medicine to help guide the appropriate use of laboratory services.”
