Due to acuity levels being higher than ever despite reimbursements falling, ancillary providers face greater pressure for faster turnaround times. These pressures occur despite geographical and financial limitations on facilities. Estimated turnaround time on STAT blood work also plays a significant role in decisions on whether to send out or keep a resident. With the introduction, training, and implementation of the Aculabs Point of Care Program, patient results are online in minutes not hours. Our devices are fully CLIA waived and the maintenance of the device is fully managed by us.
Current Tests: Na, K+, CL, TCO2, Anion Gap, iCalcium, Glucose, BUN, Creat, H&H
All results obtained on the device will transmit back to our laboratory to run through a delta check and be integrated back into the patient’s chart for cumulative reporting. Ultimately, we offer an integration that can keep residents in the facilities, helping to reduce the rate of readmission.
