Increase Access
to Care

See how new models of healthcare delivery are emerging to drive anytime, anywhere access to care
The challenge

Capacity to meet the growing demand for healthcare is decreasing

In healthcare settings across the United States:

  • More patients are accessing care
  • Due to continued consolidation, fewer hospitals and hospital beds are available to accommodate these patients
  • Healthcare systems are challenged with overcrowding and long wait times
  • Patient care is moving outside of the hospital

The solution

New approaches to shaping care

Integrating  diagnostic information into the patient-care pathway is helping many healthcare organizations increase patients' access to high-quality, efficient care. With-patient testing:

  • Offers a platform that can be standardized throughout hospitals, ambulatory clinics, home care services, free standing EDs and urgent care clinics
  • Provides lab-quality results in minutes, not hours
  • Improves access to healthcare services in rural locations
