The economic value of pathology: achieving better health, and a better use of health resources

 

On Tuesday April 12, Pathology Awareness Australia launched an exciting new report at a pathology laboratory in central Sydney as part of our ongoing work to build understanding of pathology in the community.

Written by the Centre for International Economics, it is the first report in Australia to take a detailed look at the financial savings and broad benefits that pathology provides to the health system and patients. Focusing on the examples of diabetes, heart disease and bowel cancer, it highlights the central role of pathology in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.
