AdvantEdge Healthcare Solutions

In this tipsheet, we describe the 4 areas that cause the majority of billing errors. These errors can easily reduce collections by five percent or more, costing a typical practice or department hundreds of thousands of dollars, and frequently more.

They include front-end reconciliation, eligibility, underpayments and pathologist documentation.

Mistakes or incomplete processes in these areas also increase days in A/R, delay reimbursement and can lead to compliance violations or fines.

In today's era of ongoing pressures on pathology reimbursement, preventing these mistakes is more important than ever.

ARUP Laboratories

EGFR T790M Mutation in Circulating Tumor DNA by Digital Droplet PCR

ctDNA testing provides a rapid, minimally invasive blood testing alternative to traditional biopsy or resection tissue analysis of EGFR T790M mutation status in non-small cell lung adenocarcinoma.

This test is ideally suited for testing blood plasma or cerebrospinal fluid for:
  • EGFR T790M drug-resistant mutation detection at initial diagnosis or recurrence of non-small cell lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Quantitative, highly-sensitive (0.5 - < 0.01% mutant allele frequency*) monitoring of therapeutic response or disease progression in patients eligible for EGFR T790M-specific TKIs.

Learn more about this test: www.aruplab.com/T790M

*based upon the amount of amplification DNA, the limit of detection ranges from 0.5% to less than 0.01% mutant alleles.

Exakt Technologies

Why More Labs Are Choosing EXAKT

Processing bone and bone/soft tissue samples with a butcher's saw produces poor results and handling is extremely dangerous.

Even small diamond saws create artifact and limit the size of a sample that can be grossed. And neither can easily handle the surprise of an implanted device.

The EXAKT Pathology Saw provides quick, precise sectioning of the sample. It delivers debris-free, undamaged surfaces for Surgical Pathology and cassette-size samples to enhance tissue processing for histology. It combines the highest level of safety with equally high-quality results.
