BLUE BELL, Pa. --(Business Wire)--
Orange (News - Alert) Health Solutions / MZI HealthCare and Halfpenny Technologies
announced today they will be co- presenting "What Does Value Mean?
How ACOs, Bundled Payments, Capitation, and Narrow Networks Will Change
Labs' Relationships with Providers" at the 19th Annual Executive War
College on Lab and Pathology Management to be held April 29-30, 2014 at
the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans.
Pam Maxwell, the Chief Growth Officer for the new combined company of
Orange Health Solutions / MZI HealthCare, along with Halfpenny
Technologies' Senior VP of Sales & Marketing, Jack Redding and Chief
Technology Officer, Charles Halfpenny will provide unique insight into
the driving forces behind the deliverance of high quality patient care
within emerging healthcare models such as ACOs (Accountable Care
Organizations) as it relates to laboratory diagnostic testing.
"A key goal of an ACO is to provide efficient, timely, coordinated care
for their patients, especially the chronically ill, while avoiding
unnecessary duplication of services," stated Tim Kowalski, President and
CEO of Halfpenny Technologies. "Clinical laboratory information is a
critical piece necessary to obtain their goals. Analysis of laboratory
results can also demonstrate the efficiency of an ACO's care management
program. It's important for labs to understand how best to work with
ACOs to improve patient care."
