Clinical Pathology Program

RCM Enterprise Services (RCM) works with clinical pathology groups to build and scale their presence in the physician and nursing home marketplace while creating efficiencies that will improve their current workflow in the hospital inpatient and outpatient setting. Regardless of whether your group is independent or consists of hospital employees, our program focuses on creating additional revenue that will contribute to your group’s bottom line—with minimal upfront cost.

Once operational, your program becomes self-sufficient. Regardless of size or capabilities, clinical pathology groups can leverage RCM’s technology and expertise to create, maintain, and grow their clinical pathology business.

The core program consists of an integrated clinical and anatomic pathology system. The single system approach increases productivity, lowers operational costs, and keeps all of your business on one system. The program includes front-end and back-end technology designed to expand your client base and maximize your reimbursement.
