Clinical Lab Management

News on issues related to managing clinical laboratories.

The Manhattan-based lab will scale its capacity to process 20,000 tests per day by November and provide results dedicated to the city.

AACC noted that the number of sites performing clinical lab testing in the US has risen to 266,000 in 2020 from 154,000 in 1993.

Questions around performance and a lack of clear clinical utility have hampered uptake, though improved standardization and vaccine launches could boost usage.

The payor says that the registry will provide needed transparency around test orders, but labs say it is an unnecessary burden, especially amidst a pandemic. 

LabCorp also entered into a lab services relationship with the healthcare system, through which it will provide reference testing for all the system's facilities and clinics.
