COLABORATE LABORATORY MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Running a successful and compliant laboratory comes with an array of challenges. No matter how experienced or knowledgeable an individual or his or her team are, often there is not enough time in the day to oversee every aspect of managing a lab. Many times, labs will outsource all or some of the lab management processes to a laboratory consulting company.
Colaborate is proud to offer a variety of lab management, consulting, and advisory services. Below are our more popular management services, but we also help with planning, compliance, and performance improvement for labs in various stages, whether it be a new laboratory build or a health system and laboratory integration.

Facing marketplace issues, shifting practice patterns, reimbursement demands, and complex regulations most labs are forced to take their focus off work they’re in business to do.

STAFFING AND BENCHMARKING
Labor is one of the most significant fixed costs for every clinical or hospital-based laboratory. How you develop, compensate, and benchmark your full-time equivalent (FTE) employees against industry standards can make a dramatic impact on the margins and financial health of your business. Colaborate engages a set of proprietary staffing and compensation tools to maximize the potential of your workforce, including pathology professionals.
- Compensation Analysis: Colaborate analyzes and assists in the design of compensation, incentive, and productivity models for all types of physician specialties.
- Workflow Analysis: Colaborate produces accurate and timely information to give physicians the performance and laboratory information necessary to provide adequate patient treatment.
Together, we can put the right people, processes, and capabilities in place to create sustainable success for your lab.
