TU2-14: Is a Physicians' Group and Outpatient Clinic a Good Fit for Your Blood Center?


Oct 22, 2019 9:00am ‐ Oct 22, 2019 10:30am

Description

As the healthcare landscape challenges blood centers to redefine their current business models, an increasing number of blood centers are looking to adjacent lines of business for possible synergies and new revenue streams. A physician-run clinic specializing in Transfusion Medicine services is a potential candidate for consideration for some centers. 

This session will explore the business and medical cases for developing an outpatient transfusion medicine clinic within the confines of a blood center. The requirements for analyzing, structuring and developing such a model will be discussed. The scope of potential services offered (e.g. pre-op anemia evaluation and treatment, therapeutic phlebotomy, iron deficiency evaluation and treatment, outpatient transfusion and outpatient therapeutic apheresis) will be explored and evaluated.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess whether a physician-run outpatient clinic is a “good fit” for their current blood center model.
  • Examine the pros and cons of developing such a model.
  • Identify the key steps in the formation and running of a blood center- associated and physician-administered outpatient transfusion medicine clinic.
