Detailed Lab Test Pricing Analysis

Understand the Full Costs of Doing Business 
Take the Mystery Out of Lab Test Pricing

Primarily geared towards demystifying in-house lab test pricing, Rachel breaks down the true costs behind your lab testing, including supplies and labor. Once your true cost-per-test is calculated, you can easily add a flat amount or percentage for desired profit. Built-in formulas make it easy to gauge effects of proposed pricing on profit margins and mark ups.

Please note practice-specific information will be needed: test menu and approximate test volumes, staff wages/salary, and equipment purchase/lease price.


Lab Test Pricing

 Umbrella multipliers like "2.5x costs" likely fail to incorporate your true costs and profits.

Testimonials

"Rachel was easy to work with, understood what we needed, and made helpful suggestions to the lab contracts presented to us. We wish we would've contacted her prior to deciding on which external lab we wanted to go with. Her specialty is niche in our industry, and really so important. It was really helpful to have someone with her knowledge guide us on the contracts and she helped us make the best decisions possible!"

Co-Owners, Pacific City Veterinary Care, WA

"The most important service that Amwell Data Services offers is effective listening. Rachel spent a significant portion of her time working with us to sit down and listen to all stakeholders share their feedback and ideas about what improvements they wanted to see in lab operations. She was able to take all those competing perspectives from staff, vets, and techs and find a series of solutions that made positive improvements for everyone. Never once did she attempt to apply a cookie cutter solution to us--she was incredibly focused on finding the right solution that worked for us. She was receptive to all kinds of feedback throughout the process, and monitored her implemented changes to ensure that they worked as planned. In instances where there were hiccups along the way, she took the time to write protocols, train our staff, or, if it was clear the process just wouldn't work, would simply move on to another, better solution. If the best solution required her to teach herself a new skill or platform, she would do so without being asked in order to keep the process moving forward. Rachel is a problem solver, and while her professional focus is on lab services, I wouldn't hesitate to consult with her any time I had a problem that I needed solving."

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of practices do you serve?

All types of veterinary practices are welcome, from equine-only to small animal hospitals and exotics. Just like all animals need care, I aim to provide their veterinarians with support in the laboratory.

Do you only serve the Northeast US?

I serve veterinarians around the country, and I welcome international clients. I'm always up for a challenge, and would love to serve the international veterinary community as well.
How do you work with practices?

Most work for veterinary start-ups is performed remotely over Zoom and phone calls.

What is the typical timeline, and what should practice owners expect?

End-to-end timelines vary, and are typically 3-6 months. Confidentiality and clear expectations are paramount, so a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is signed prior to partnering together. Once the project scope and solutions are defined and agreed upon, a mutually-signed contract ensures we're both aware of expectations. Once a deposit is received, Rachel gets to work planning your future lab. Once we've reviewed the vendor proposals together, we move forward with the best fit.

What is your pricing structure?

Current pricing for start-up laboratory planning and negotiation is $2,000 for Stage 1, and $1,000 per vendor for Stage 2. Stage 3 is 30% of the Total Contract Savings minus prior investments (e.g., Stages 1 & 2). See above for a pricing example.
