Level 1 – Reference Testing Partnership
Level One partnership offers a low risk by moving your reference testing to Alverno, an ISO-15189 certified laboratory. MedSpeed’s courier service will pick up your specimens and deliver them to our state-of-the-art central laboratory in Hammond, Indiana. Moving your reference testing to our laboratory helps your hospital save money while improving patient care.
Level 2 – Strategic Hospital Cooperative
Share in Alverno’s successes by joining our strategic hospital cooperative. By moving all non-STAT testing to Alverno Laboratories, you take advantage of our sophisticated technology, strong reference laboratory testing menu, and reduced cost of testing. Alverno can assist with managing your local laboratory operation using the proven strategies we call Alverno Business Systems: quality, service, and operational strategies to improve most, if not all, facets of your onsite laboratory’s productivity and efficiency.
Level 3 – Integrated Network
Larger hospital systems may benefit from the Level Three integrated network partnership. Our integrated network offers full-scale lab management with Alverno’s non-for-profit organization and buy-in to the centralized reference laboratory. There is a potential to develop an ownership interest and Board membership. This membership provides savings related to economies of scale, employee management, utilization management, and access to Alverno Business Services to strengthen your hospital laboratory’s productivity and efficiency.
