Instant lab Results

Beginning today we can instantly access lab test results online. Quest Diagnostics who provides the lab work for the Free Clinic has implemented a program where the nurse at the Free Clinic can obtain results for lab tests preformed on Free Clinic patients by logging in to Quest’s patient database. Previously, when a patient returned for a follow-up examination, if the results were not back yet from the lab, our nurse would have to call the lab and have them Fax over the results. Sometimes this would take time, especially if the lab was busy. Now the nurse just logs in and prints the lab report on our own printer.
