Elevating the role of the laboratory in health care
Mayo Clinic Laboratories’ Outreach Program delivers on our promise to provide the right test to the right patient. Our collaborative outreach partnerships provide hospital laboratory leaders with Mayo Clinic expertise and individualized strategies to develop robust outreach programs with the capacity to provide advanced testing locally. Our experienced, industry-leading outreach consultants offer unparalleled insights and experience to help hospital-based laboratories evolve from cost-centers to revenue generators.
Underscored by our core belief that the best care is delivered locally, our Outreach Program connects teams of experts with providers across the United States to cultivate a suite of solutions to help laboratories build and sustain outreach programs that improve efficiencies and minimize waste. This increases hospital revenues, decreases costs, and most importantly, improves patient care.
One of the best partners to move specimens to the hospital testing laboratory is a reliable courier service. Courier employees interact regularly with hospital outreach clients and are a valuable asset in representing the hospital brand. Therefore, an effective partnership with the courier is essential to creating an effective outreach program and a positive patient experience.
In this episode of the "Leveraging the Laboratory" podcast, host Jane Hermansen, outreach manager at Mayo Clinic Laboratories, discusses courier options and logistics with outreach colleagues Brianne Newton and Ellen Dijkman Dulkes. They highlight what needs to be considered when choosing a courier service and how to leverage the courier partnership so it adds value to your outreach lab.
