Read Kentmere's recently published White Paper, "The Evolution of Outpatient Laboratory Benefit Management: Sound Science & Medicine with Appropriate Oversight"

Before 2000, the category of outpatient lab benefit management did not exist. Both concept and category were established by Kentmere Healthcare Consulting Corporation to assist health insurers manage outpatient laboratory testing costs and use as well as improve laboratory service quality and access for members and physicians. As Kentmere continued to define the category, lab benefit management now includes providing effective and ongoing evaluation of new laboratory testing, including genetics, for clinical validity and utility with medical policy guidelines. It also includes measuring performance standards to include member and physician service levels access and turn-around times.
