iPathology is an industry leader in assessing the specific requirements of your practice, in order to develop an in-office pathology model that optimizes patient care and ancillary revenue opportunities for you and your practice.

iPathology assists with the implementation of techniques that will aid your facility in becoming more efficient and effective, thus improving patient treatment.

Some of the benefits to allowing iPathology to assist you in building an autonomous, self-sufficient laboratory, include:
 

  • Personalized assessment of the feasibility, clinical benefits, and requirements of your office, to develop a plan designed to meet your specific needs.
  • We will help find and negotiate a salary for histotechnologists, transcriptionists, and a staff-pathologist of your choosing, if necessary.
  • iPathology will assist in the completion of all necessary applications and filings for State and Federal licenses, inspections, and regulatory approvals. We will make sure all HIPAA regulations are met, as well as ensure their continued compliance.
  • We ensure the initial set-up of all lab equipment and computer programs (Pathology Reporting Software), as well as provide ongoing maintenance and support.
  • As a larger facility, iPathology has special pre-negotiated discounted rates on supplies, chemicals, and reagents with industry vendors to which your laboratory would be welcome to take advantage of.
  • iPathology will assist in establishing a billing system, so you get paid for the pathology work you perform, for Medicare, Medicaid and other third party payors.
  • iPathology has analyzed, gone through demonstrations, and built relationships with several EMR platforms, so we can assist your office in determining which product best fits your specific needs. Whether you prefer eClinical Works, Modernizing Medicine, Advanced MD, NextGen, Clinix MIS, NexTech, or Sage, we have the ability to assist you with choosing the right brand for you, and work with your office under the new Healthcare regulations and the “Meaningful Use” criteria.
