How Did DuPage County Cut Wait Times in Half at its COVID-19 Testing Location?
Intuitive patient self-registration and scheduling, shorter wait times, and much faster turnaround times for test results. This is what the DuPage County Health Department and many other counties across the U.S. have experienced collectively since implementing TestDirectly at their COVID-19 testing locations.
For DuPage County, in particular, patient pre-registration with TestDirectly's electronic workflow has removed the issues they were having with handwritten order forms and with patient communication at the Wheaton, Ill. drive-through location, enabling the site to serve more people and get them their results quickly and easily.
The collected samples are next packaged and routed to Reditus Laboratories (Pekin, Ill.), where they need only to be scanned into the laboratory information system before going straight to processing. With TestDirectly's support, there is no order entry bottleneck and few if any data entry errors.
TestDirectly is a scalable solution developed and designed by LigoLab Information System to remove the barriers and directly connect consumers with laboratories and collection centers for safe, fast, and easy collection, testing, and reporting. Learn how it can help streamline your laboratory operations while maximizing efficiency and testing capacity.
Operational Excellence - It's Possible With the Right Laboratory Operating Platform
Operational excellence. It’s what all independent and commercial laboratories would like to achieve, but many are struggling to do so because their current laboratory information system (LIS) is outdated, non-integrated, and holding them back.
Using patchwork solutions to connect multiple systems is not the answer, but what's the alternative?
The right solution begins with a dedicated partner that takes full responsibility for all information system needs.
