Today on the DocPreneur Podcast we sit down with Bartley Bryt, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Brighton Health Solutions, where he determines the clinical vision for both the Create® and Magnacare health plan products and Paul Conlin, Founder and President of BeaconLBS, a leading lab benefit management company.
With new advances in laboratory testing, especially for genetic tests, clinicians often find it challenging to select the right tests for their patients. Recent estimates suggest that between 20–25% of genetic tests ordered by physicians are inappropriate for patients’ conditions, resulting in unnecessary costs and delays in care. The BeaconLBS PDS technology interfaces with electronic health records and lab ordering systems, providing physicians with convenient access to evidence-based guidelines along with price transparency, supporting their selection of the most appropriate test and laboratory facility for each patient.
