LabMetrics Consulting Featured In Laboratory Economics

Below is an excerpt with quotes by LMC’s Jim Sundberg in the article CMS Says Hospital Outreach Labs Must Report PAMA Pricing Data.

What Should Hospital Outreach Labs Be Doing Right Now to Prepare?

First, outreach lab leadership needs to assign a project manager to focus on the new reporting requirement, according to Jim Sundberg, President of LabMetrics Laboratory Consulting (Ish-peming, MI). For example, Sundberg notes that independent labs that reported during the first PAMA cycle typically selected either their billing manager, CIO or compliance department head as project manager.

He says that outreach lab leadership and the project manager need to quickly notify and work closely with their central billing office (CBO) or lab billing vendor to communicate and ensure all parties recognize the new CMS reporting requirement. “Everyone needs to understand the report-ing challenges that may exist in acquiring and submitting the required data.”

Finally, Sundberg says that the project manager needs to develop a plan to obtain the data re-quired by CMS, including any system changes that may be necessary.”
