Bill G

Bruce - I have one thought on Bill's comments and your take-home point. First, as a disclosure, I work at a 10+year client of Lifepoint. The lifepoint system only levels the playing field from a technology perspective, and not very much. Hospital IT is broad based, while LabCorp and Quest devote most of their IT budget to lab testing. Hospitals will never be able to level the playing field against a niche business. The key hospital advantage in performing lab outreach, in my opinion, is the relationship the hospital has with the providers, which if it is a good relationship, allows them leverage in getting outreach business.
