Innovation & Cost Savings: Beacon by LabCorp


I recently attended a meeting and LabCorp Representative spoke about various services they offer.  Toni Spain is very knowledgeable and passionate about patient care and provider the tools to the physicians to be more efficient, cost effective for the provider and provide the best care to the patient.

Ms. Spain introduced Beacon, which is at no additional cost to a general LabCorp account!  Beacon is virtual access to lab results and providers up to 2 years of lab history for the patient, no matter who ordered previous tests on file.  This will save the payers money and provider the physicians the ability to make decisions and treatment recommendations quicker for better quality patient care.  The patients many times do not remember what kind of tests other physicians orders, the results, or which physician ordered it.

This is an innovative step for LabCorp right at the time when Medicare is trying to implement Accountable Care Organizations which is all about quality care for the least expense by managing medical costs.

Contact Toni Spain for more information on this product that will change your office.
