Doctor On Demand announced that it will be the first telehealth service provider to offer fully integrated laboratory diagnostics services as part of its patient care offerings. Set to launch this summer, the new offering is added through partnerships with the two top national laboratories LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics.
"By integrating with labs and upgrading our patient profile and follow-up care services, we've taken a major step in advancing the quality and range of services treatable via telemedicine," Hill Ferguson, CEO of Doctor On Demand, said in a statement. "We're providing a higher quality and better overall experience, giving patients the unique ability to build a relationship with a single doctor, always putting the patient first."
With integration of lab experience into its platform, Doctor On Demand gives doctors direct access to an array of tests without having to go through separate lab provider platforms, while offering patients a seamless, paperless experience.
When a doctor orders a lab test, patients can directly and immediately choose the lab experience that best fits their needs according to price, location, and insurance rather than having a provider or institution dictate the experience. Patients then receive easy-to-understand results and next steps through the app.
Beyond end users, Doctor On Demand is also working with companies, and is currently counting over 400 employers, including major corporations like American Airlines and four of the Fortune 10.
