KEENE, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--G2 Intelligence — a 30+ year leader in research, reporting, and analysis on the business of the diagnostic laboratory industry — announces the release of Clinical Informatics in the Laboratory: The New Value Generator. In light of the dramatic shift within the health care market paradigm to one aimed at mandating value-based care and reimbursement based on demonstrated improved outcomes and reduction of costs, the new study serves as both a resource and a guide — answering the “why-to” and “how-to” questions surrounding this change.
In fact, clinical informatics can be optimized for managing care at both the individual patient and population levels by using a variety of value tools such as:
- Decision support reminders
- Quality metrics (e.g. red flags, follow-up reminders)
- Risk analysis
- Care monitoring
“Labs can expect information exchange and advanced levels of interconnectivity will continue to grow as a must-have to do business looking forward,” says the report’s author, Jennifer Musumeci, MS. “All clients, including but not limited to providers, hospitals, payers, and patients, will increasingly demand access to health information that is electronic and easy to use.”
Musumeci adds, “That’s where this timely study comes in. Clearly, the time for identifying and seizing new opportunities is now — and new roles in advanced data analysis and clinical informatics are an ideal fit for labs and pathologists who are already experts in disease pathways and diagnostic science.”
The report includes a wealth of detailed analysis and advice, including:
- Explanation and analysis of the value-driven market framework for clinical informatics
Current status of Health Information Technology (HIT) infrastructure
systems adoption, such as electronic health records (EHR) and LIS
(Laboratory Information Systems) health care industry wide, with:

- Analysis of key drivers/areas of focus for adoption
- Adoption rates for EHR/EMR in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) versus hospitals
- The impact that ACO entities are having on the adoption of HIT
