PHYSICIAN OFFICE LABORATORY
Healthcare is an ever-changing field. With insurance companies making it harder and harder to collect, ancillary revenue streams become more important to make an office profitable. Heritage Lab Services is able to take a test you are already having performed by a reference laboratory and capture a portion of the revenue in-office. Instruments may be placed in the physician offices to perform the screening, confirmatory or both portions of urine drug testing. Typically, a combination of current volume and insurance mix dictate which instrument makes the most sense for each office. Our goal is to streamline testing to improve patient care.
You may think that the addition of a laboratory is overwhelming and time consuming. With our assistance we will make it a simple and seamless process. We will help your office implement a urine testing plan, that is 100% compliant, increase the patient care and will help increase your profitability.
