Actionable Solutions for Sustainable Success

Today each laboratory faces more pressure than ever to achieve cost efficiencies without 
sacrificing testing capabilities. Our hands-on and personalized approach to partnering 
with you to design your molecular solution will ensure your lab’s long-term success.

With a comprehensive approach, we deliver solid, data-driven solutions that can help 
you implement and sustain your lab’s efficiency and effectiveness through a broad suite of 
services. They include cost-benefit analysis, resource utilization planning, change 
management, quality management implementation (Six Sigma, Kaizen), IT integration 
strategy, capacity modeling and resource forecasting.

 

Quantify the Benefits of Molecular Optimization

Our processes are based on proven solutions, practical insight and a track record of success.

Identifying, developing, implementing and maintaining your laboratory’s transformation is a multistep process that includes discovery, analytics, insights, action and monitoring.

Discovery
 
Assessment of day-to-day lab operations

Whether it’s a day or weeklong observation, our team of solution specialists gets to know your lab inside and out. Our holistic value analysis approach focuses on more than just reagents and instruments; it incorporates and measures all environmental factors that impact your lab, from pre-analytic and post-analytic workflows to review of maintenance records. By determining the cost of your current process, we can identify if there is a more effective substitute to optimize your lab services.

“I’ve never seen a company come in and learn so much about our whole process and how our laboratory works.”

– Director of a large Los Angeles area reference laboratory 

 

Analytics
 
Areas of improvement and opportunity

The Abbott team works with you to identify assays, equipment, and services that will help meet your objectives. When we recommend a solution, we’ll calculate and quantify how this solution will improve your operations whether it's in cost savings or an increase in quality.

Insights
 
Data Driven, Measurable Solutions

Our value assessment will outline a practical approach on how to improve your lab operations and can include:

process iconProcess and operations analysis

Address flow of information (data) and samples.  Improve on labor (hands-on time) and waste.

revenue iconAsset utilization

Explore bringing tests in-house, expanding test menu, and/or consolidating tests onto the fewest platforms. 

informatics iconIT Systems Integration

Develop IT recommendations to minimize human error, automate reporting, and improve client services.

capacity iconCapacity modeling and resource forecasting

Explore opportunities to increase testing volume without adding additional instruments, staff, or extending work schedules.

quality iconQuality control and quality assurance

Evaluate results looking for insufficient amount of samples, dilutions, assay incongruities or calibration frequency and calculate the cost and potential patient impact of such occurrences.

Testimonial

“Abbott is working with our IT to interface the instruments. We achieved significant labor savings. The salary saving will be used to expand our testing services.” 

 – Director of a large Los Angeles area reference laboratory
Action
 
Proven implementation methodologyAbbott molecular lab

Our detailed multi-step implementation process ensures your lab’s success from delivery and installation of solutions to the final training and handoff. We partner with your team every step of the way, including creating and executing change management plans, to make sure solutions are seamlessly integrated into your lab operations with minimal downtime.

“The process to get the instruments installed and the staff trained was excellent. They succeed in addressing the change management of the staff who were hesitant in trying something new.” 

– Director of a large Los Angeles area reference laboratory

The Abbott accountability promise

cost savingsDuring our business review, we'll revisit the promised results. If performance standards are not being met, together we will readjust and develop a work plan to achieve your stated goals. Additionally, throughout the year, your lab will be supported with ongoing consultation, troubleshooting, on-site preventive maintenance, and servicing so your lab is operating at top performance.
