Clinical laboratories are an essential part of the health industry. It is estimated that approximately 80% of physician's diagnoses are a result of laboratory tests. The constant pressure to reduce healthcare spending is shifting healthcare utilization in favor of the laboratory, making it an ever more valuable part of the treatment plan. As hospital stays are shortened, contact between the physician and patient is reduced, which places a larger role on labs to gather, interpret, and deliver accurate information to the physician in a timely manner. We can expect to see an increase in the number of clinical labs, particularly in the independent sector, as these trends continue to influence the industry.

Since the last time Kalorama Information studied this market two years ago, there have been substantial changes in the industry, including changes in market share as major companies eat into regional labs, new competitors enter the marketplace, and new specialty tests are developed and priced.
