BLUE BELL, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orange Health Solutions / MZI HealthCare and Halfpenny Technologies announced today they will be co- presenting “What Does Value Mean? How ACOs, Bundled Payments, Capitation, and Narrow Networks Will Change Labs’ Relationships with Providers” at the 19th Annual Executive War College on Lab and Pathology Management to be held April 29-30, 2014 at the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans.
Pam Maxwell, the Chief Growth Officer for the new combined company of Orange Health Solutions / MZI HealthCare, along with Halfpenny Technologies’ Senior VP of Sales & Marketing, Jack Redding and Chief Technology Officer, Charles Halfpenny will provide unique insight into the driving forces behind the deliverance of high quality patient care within emerging healthcare models such as ACOs (Accountable Care Organizations) as it relates to laboratory diagnostic testing.
“A key goal of an ACO is to provide efficient, timely, coordinated care for their patients, especially the chronically ill, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services,” stated Tim Kowalski, President and CEO of Halfpenny Technologies. “Clinical laboratory information is a critical piece necessary to obtain their goals. Analysis of laboratory results can also demonstrate the efficiency of an ACO’s care management program. It’s important for labs to understand how best to work with ACOs to improve patient care.”
