As medical laboratory test utilization grows, health insurers develop programs to manage rising costs
Dark Daily
Health insurers are taking more aggressive actions to control the cost of clinical laboratory testing. For many years, clinical laboratories and pathology groups have been concerned about the strategies used by Medicare to control the utilization and costs of medical laboratory tests. Private health insurers usually follow the actions of Medicare, the nation's largest health insurer. But today, managed care plans are developing their own lab-test-utilization strategies in addition to following those of Medicare.

    USA Today
    Sloppy biosafety practices and contaminated worker clothing are the likely ways dangerous bioterror bacteria got out of a high-security lab in Louisiana, according to federal findings released recently. At least eight monkeys, and possibly a person, were exposed to the bacteria that somehow got outside the lab at the Tulane National Primate Research Center about 35 miles north of New Orleans.

    An observational study goes where randomized clinical trials have not
    JAMA
    Randomized clinical trials are considered the "gold standard" for providing actionable evidence to guide clinical decision making. However, they cannot always address important questions. For instance, statistically significant results for low-frequency outcomes like mortality sometimes require longer follow-up times or larger studies than can be practically undertaken.

    Does your clinical lab or pathology group have the effective leaders it needs during these challenging times?
    Dark Daily
    Some would argue that leadership in medical laboratories recently has something in common with the opening line of a famous 19th century novel. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times," is the first sentence in "A Tale of Two Cities," Charles Dickens' famous novel. Many pathologists and clinical laboratory managers would agree that this sentence accurately describes today's marketplace for medical laboratory testing.
