Increasing administrative responsibilities – due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models – reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. By implementing pre-visit laboratory testing, physician practices can increase the amount of information that can be discussed during their in-person encounter with patients. In addition, pre-visit laboratory testing helps decrease the amount of time the team spends following up with patients to discuss results and follow-up care in the days after the visit.

Diplomate Engagement

Learners must successfully complete the quiz, answering 4 out of 5 questions correctly and complete the evaluation. Participants can request a certificate upon completion.
