Pathologists are playing an important role in the successful transition from volume to value, focusing on outcomes and the patient experience, as well as eliminating unnecessary costs. By partnering with other clinicians and staying abreast of the most recent advances in diagnostics, pathologists can ensure that patients receive the appropriate test at the right time with an accurate diagnosis. Health Forum convened a panel of pathologists and hospital executives recently in San Diego to discuss how pathologists continue to provide and demonstrate value for patients in their institutions and across the care continuum.
