The root-level changes in health care delivery that are in progress will make demands on pathologists that are almost without precedent in the post-Medicare era.
Their turbulent pace and uncertain direction confer an added sense of urgency to the need for an effective response.
For pathologists, the most uncomfortable changes may involve assuming responsibilities that are a marked departure from traditional training and practice.
Chief among these are a need for more familiarity with the ways a corporate structure operates, a more thorough understanding of the needs and wants of buyers of physicians'services, and the ability to manage a practice successfully as an enterprise.
Despite the variety of current approaches to managed care, there are common themes that invite the careful consideration of pathologists.
Many of these reflect basic problems with which care managers must cope routinely.
Of equal importance to the future success of pathology practice is the need to develop a high level of skill in constantly evaluating the strengths, weaknesses, and future directions of one's own practice.
