LigoLab Adds LIS Functionality and Other Enhancements to TestDirectly, its Direct-to-Consumer Platform
November 16, 2023
LOS ANGELES, CA – March 10, 2021 -- LigoLab, developers of enterprise laboratory information system software (LIS) for medical laboratories and first care facilities, today announced that its direct-to-consumer lab testing platform, TestDirectly, is now equipped with LIS functionality that makes it a lightweight point-of-care option for low-volume testing facilities.
“TestDirectly supports instrument interfaces and manual lab testing workflows, plus report generation and delivery, and reporting to health agencies,” said LigoLab CEO Suren Avunjian. “TestDirectly is an adaptable direct-to-consumer lab testing tool with the flexibility to expand and grow with these smaller organizations as they scale their diagnostic services and ability to efficiently deliver consumer lab reports.”
For larger facilities processing thousands of samples a day, TestDirectly integrates with all other laboratory information systems and revenue cycle management (RCM) systems to boost testing capacity and improve turnaround times. TestDirectly results time improves by replacing paper forms and manual order entry with an electronic workflow that covers the complete life-cycle of a case and a specimen, including patient and family self-registration and scheduling, capacity management, specimen collection, laboratory billing, specimen tracking and processing, automated consumer lab report delivery, and reporting to public health departments and agencies in every state.
In addition to the new lab information system functionality that caters to smaller facilities, other recent enhancements to the direct-to-consumer platform include the ability to link multiple family members to one account, and the on-demand download of travel documents for air travel.
“TestDirectly has evolved to meet the needs of our customers,” said Avunjian, who noted that the platform has the capacity to support hundreds of thousands of patients being processed every single day on the platform. “TestDirectly supports every potential workflow for direct-to-consumer lab testing.”
To date, the ability to test directly continues to improve thanks to the TestDirectly network, made up of laboratories, specimen collection centers, urgent care facilities, and outpatient clinics located throughout the U.S.. This network has collected, processed, and reported millions of tests since the pandemic began in earnest back in 2020. Organizations ranging from long-term care facilities and employers to state and county health departments rely on TestDirectly for safe, fast, and easy direct-to-consumer lab testing.
