San Diego, Calif., - April 17, 2012 - XIFIN Inc., the company revolutionizing revenue cycle management for diagnostic service providers, today announced that Rina Wolf, VP of Commercialization Strategies, Consulting and Industry Affairs, has been selected to speak at the 17th annual Executive War College on Laboratory and Pathology Management, May 1-2, 2012 in New Orleans, LA.
The Executive War College is the premier conference of its kind, providing access to more than 80 laboratory and pathology experts presenting sessions on laboratory innovations, strategy and profitability.
Rina Wolf will be presenting the extended program, "Evaluating Opportunities for Investment in Genetic Testing: Turning Good Science into Good Business," on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 from 3:30 PM - 4:15 PM. The session will highlight the best opportunities for new molecular diagnostic tests, barriers to commercialization and reimbursement, and how to ensure commercialization success.
"One big challenge for any laboratory or company developing a molecular or genetic test is to obtain favorable coverage decisions and adequate reimbursement from Medicare and private health insurers," stated Robert L. Michel, Editor-In-Chief of The Dark Report and founder of the Executive War College. "Rina Wolf is one of just a handful of experts in the lab testing industry with a demonstrated track record in successfully launching new molecular and genetic assays. Her presentation will be highly useful for anyone preparing to bring proprietary lab tests to the clinical marketplace, particularly since Rina will not only identify the essential steps that need to be taken, but will also share some of the overlooked pitfalls. Her presentation will be chock-full of practical knowledge."
Rina will also be participating as a panelist in the post-conference workshop, "Getting Paid for Molecular and Genetic Tests: Latest Changes in How Government and Private Payers Want to Reimburse Labs," on Thursday, May 3. The panel will provide insights on the many changes taking place in how government and private payers want to develop coverage guidelines and establish reimbursement for molecular diagnostic assays and genetic tests. Attendees can expect some interesting predictions about future payer revisions to coverage and reimbursement guidelines.
