Staffing & Benchmarking
One of the most significant fixed costs to in a clinical or hospital-based laboratory is the labor component. The way in which this valuable commodity is used (or underused) dramatically impacts the margins and financial health of the laboratory. Colaborate appreciates the critical importance of the labor component and has developed a number of proprietary tools - using industry benchmark information - to maximize full-time equivalent (FTE) employees while maintaining high quality results. These proprietary tools also assist with pathology staffing and compensation.
Colaborate uses these tools extensively in our operational assessments and provides impactful results to our clients when advising them upon their particular labor requirements.
Without question, Pathologist compensation is one of the most highly controversial issues impacting employee satisfaction in laboratories today. Colaborate has been called upon on a number of occasions to analyze and assist in the design of compensation and productivity models for all types of physician specialties.
Colaborate offers professionals experienced in developing creative base salary recommendations, along with aligned incentive production and compensation.
Clinical and pathology laboratories play one of the most pivotal roles in delivering proper medical care today. Without the accurate and timely information provided by today's laboratory professionals, physicians would not have the information necessary to provide adequate patient treatment. Because of this, it is imperative for laboratories to continually improve operational performance and laboratory efficiency.
