“The PNPL library contents and access to the PNPL membership have been invaluable resources as we navigate challenges around topics such as recruiting, hospital contract negotiations, insurer contracting as it relates to professional charges on clinical pathology work, and the implementation of digital pathology.”

“After Joining PNPL, our pathology group in Arizona (one of the largest in the nation) found expert advice on billing, coding and digital pathology, as well as suggestions and support for our negotiations with United Healthcare. The PNPL team is full of experts in the pathology space who are sharing best practices, tools and templates that allow for knowledge in the industry. I highly recommend joining this think tank and look forward to continuing our relationship.”

“Membership in PNPL offers IU the ability to see the pathology field as a whole, rather than looking solely through the academic lens. The interaction with PNPL’s private practice groups allows me to understand their ‘pain points.’ Since our academic group includes community practices at the outlying hospitals, we too are feeling some of the same pain. Access to benchmarks from both academic and private practices has also been invaluable as I address issues on the academic side.”
