No one wants to wait a few days on test results, it’s agonizing. Ideally, we want to be diagnosed and treated in the same visit.
77% of patients don’t want to travel to a different location for lab work.1
Many medical practices, and perhaps you are one of them, have already figured out that the benefits of offering in-office lab services outnumber the drawbacks. But are you aware that faster and more accurate molecular testing devices are now available for women’s health?
On-site diagnostics can create an environment that patients trust and where health matters can be addressed quickly. Still on the fence? Read our article to learn more about molecular testing and its impact on patient care.

Cancer continues to be a leading health problem in the United States. Awareness and active dialogue between patients and care providers builds trust and leads to quality care. Education is key to cancer prevention, early detection and decision-making about treatment options.

It’s really up to you! We can help your practice work smarter.
In recent years, medical and pharmaceutical advertising has shifted to focus on the consumer, rather than the healthcare provider. This holds very true to therapies in women’s health.
Direct-to-OB/GYN marketing has declined 35% since 2014.4
In addition to TV and radio advertising, the internet is changing how patients learn, providing them access to immediate information. There’s a good chance your patients learn about new pharmaceutical therapies before you. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) set an all-time record with 59 new drug and therapeutic approvals in 2018,5 several of these indicated to help women become and stay healthy.
But who has time to keep up with all these new products? We do, and our priority is making sure medical practices like yours are up to date and benefit from safe medical distribution, ordering efficiency, reliable communications and stable pricing programs. Knowing about all the options will allow you to create a more personalized patient experience.
