Back by Popular Demand! G2 Intelligence and Laboratory Economics to Host Second Annual Pathology Institute in Fort Lauderdale this February
PETERBOROUGH, N.H. --(Business Wire)--
G2 (News - Alert) Intelligence and Laboratory Economics are joining forces once
again February 28-March 1 at the Westin Beach Resort & Spa in Fort
Lauderdale, Florida to host Pathology
Institute 2013: Grow Your Practice in Turbulent Times: Pathology
Business Models and Strategies that Work. This two-day event
gathers a cadre of industry experts to analyze and provide practical
solutions to some of the most pressing issues in today's market, as well
as how to proactively deal with in-sourcing of AP services, and forging
successful business relationships with hospitals/health systems.
"It's a tough payment climate for pathology practices - and it won't be
getting any easier," according to Dennis Weissman, event Co-chair and
Executive Editor, G2 Intelligence. "Medicare payments for physicians
remain frozen for another year. And, pathologists are still reeling from
a devastating cut of 52% in the technical component payment for surgical
pathology code 88305."
"As pathology practices nationwide search for ways to deal with a series
of government policies that could well have a devastating impact on
their Medicare revenues in the year ahead, this unique event will once
again bring together a distinguished faculty of pathology leaders who
will provide in-depth insights and practical solutions," says Jondavid
Klipp, event Co-chair and President of Laboratory Economics.
G2 Managing Director Stephanie Murg adds, "Attendees with a particular
interest in M&A transactions will also want to take advantage of the
post-conference workshop, Understanding the New Climate for Buying,
Selling, and Merging Pathology Groups. Our expert faculty will share
key considerations and trends, best practices, and legal issues-and walk
participants through a real deal from start to finish."
Attendees will learn from physicians, lab executives, and other
pathology leaders, through an exploration of key topics, including:
Keynote: Staying Independent in the Age of Corporate Pathology: Views
