Pathology Practice Management
Whether you already have a laboratory or are interested in converting an existing space into a pathology lab, we have a wide range of solutions to offer. With our extensive experience in laboratory management consulting, Lighthouse has many different options to fit your project.
Pathology Lab Management Services
At Lighthouse Lab Services, we offer a range of Lab Management Services to help pathology labs run smoothly and efficiently.
We assist in the process of acquiring high-quality histology equipment at competitive pricing by leveraging our extensive vendor relationships and purchasing power.
Lab Supply Vendor Relations
Most labs will require basic supplies such as reagents, quality control materials, and miscellaneous materials such as slides, cassettes, and stains. We help secure quality lab supplies at cost-effective prices.
If your lab needs to be relocated to accommodate an expansion or new space, Lighthouse offers assistance with the relocation of your lab and equipment, including the revalidation process.
Pathology billing and reimbursement tracking can be complex. Fortunately, our expert pathology billing staff is available to advise on your claims and assist with the credentialing process for challenging payers.
Payer Contracting and Credentialing
Lighthouse’s Payer Strategy Solutions team specializes in payer contracting, credentialing, and negotiation services for all provider types, with a focus on medical laboratories.
Quarterly Lab Check-Ups
Good laboratory quality programs require ongoing monitoring. We can help you implement a system that will assist your lab to maintain a high level of quality compliance.
Staff Competency Evaluation
Competency assessment is a significant portion of maintaining your lab’s accreditation and compliance. Our team helps train your staff and assess their competency at required intervals.
Compliant Waste Solutions
Let’s face it, properly disposing of chemical and biological waste is something every histology lab must plan for. We assist in this area by offering cost-effective and compliant waste storage and disposal.
Lab Inspection Prep
Lighthouse also helps our pathology labs meet their CLIA inspection requirements through inspection preparation and mock inspections. Our expert team of in-house Lab Directors and Technical Consultants will help ensure you’re ready for success.
Laboratory Information System (LIS)
We pride ourselves on offering clients our Beacon LIS – a software solution with a thoughtful user interface with effortless page navigation, data import options, and module customization. Beacon LIS is a robust and scalable cloud-based Laboratory Information System for laboratories of all sizes.
On-Going Lab Management
Most small labs have just a few employees and could benefit from the support of a team of experienced lab personnel to help keep their operations running efficiently. In these instances, Lighthouse can provide an extra layer of managerial consulting support.

Part A Contracting
"Our pathology group has been using Lighthouse's Practice Management for the past year and have been very happy with the service. For the first time I feel confident that our billing company is compliant and giving us the service we need. Lighthouse helped us renegotiate our contract with a substantial savings. They also assisted in switching to a more effective collection service. It is nice to know that help is one call or text away and that I can trust their advice."

Robbie Graham, MD, Comanche County Memorial Hospital
"Lighthouse has been a true ally through the years, battling the slings and arrows of the Pathology world. I can rely on them to keep up with laws and issues we face, while I focus on Pathology and patient care. They provide oversight over our billing office, which sometimes needs prodding. They have my back, and I appreciate the help."
"We partner with Lighthouse because they are always a step ahead. They have strengthened our practice with their knowledge and expertise. We appreciate their dedication and integrity!"
Lucent Pathology Partners
"Our group has used Lighthouse for many years. When we started they did an in depth investigation of our billing process and identified areas where we could make improvements and increase our monthly revenue. They took us through two different RFP processes for billing agencies and helped identify the best match for us. Through all of this they have been knowledgeable, professional, and efficient, displaying integrity by reducing their fee during our lowest months. I highly recommend them."
