With significant pathology practice management experience within PDM, natural growth has occurred in Pathology/Lab. PDM serves very large practices with independent laboratories, both AP and Clinical, as well as smaller practices of just a couple physicians. The key to managing successes for all types of Pathology/Lab clients is attending to the bottom line, communicating well and often, providing useful data/information, and treating each client’s cash as if it was our own. In Pathology/Lab, PDM has become a very useful “partner” for its clients, assisting in such profitable work as analyzing reimbursement in order to renegotiate payer contracts and, ultimately, sitting down with payers to determine terms and conditions of contracts.
