Value of Clinical Labs

America’s clinical laboratories serve as the foundation for early diagnosis, prevention and personalized care for millions of patients. From routine blood tests to ground-breaking genetic and molecular diagnostics, clinical laboratories play a vital role in improving patient outcomes and quality of life while delivering better value for the health system on the whole.

Prevention and early detection are not only beneficial to patient outcomes and quality of life, they also drive savings across the health system by helping to identify diseases and risk factors for diseases at an early stage. Diabetes alone, for example, is associated with $16 billion in annual spending that could have been avoided through earlier diagnosis and better disease management.
