Why Payors Choose Us

We help support Triple Aim initiatives

The Triple Aim framework was developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement to optimize health system performance. The way we do pathology at Inform Diagnostics helps support each aim of this framework.

Triple Aim framework
  • Improve the overall health of your population
    Analyze your member data against our national database of diagnoses. Our coded data—unique among labs—makes this possible.
  • Reduce per-capita costs of care
    Our subspecialist pathologists and daily consensus conferences enable Inform Diagnostics to provide in-house second opinions for your members at no additional cost.
  • Enhance the patient experience
    By getting the diagnosis right the first time, we benefit patients and help payors reduce the costs of additional office visits, repeat procedures, and unnecessary treatments.
