Why Turnaround Times Matter
Quick turnaround times are not just about convenience. For many patients, receiving timely results can be crucial for early diagnosis, treatment planning, and peace of mind. Delays can lead to anxiety, prolonged uncertainty, and in some cases, can even impact the effectiveness of treatment.
Enhancing the Patient Experience
To ensure optimal patient experience, we track wait times on all the labs we work with, which are all lab providers in Ontario, whether that be LifeLabs, Dynacare, Alpha Labs or anywhere else. Now TeleTest customers can find the labs with the shortest wait times in their city.
For example, the labs in Toronto shows LifeLabs at the Humber College PSC location has the fastest turnaround time as patients can expect to get their results in under a day. Similarly for the 23 labs in Ottawa, LifeLabs at Riverside Dr PSC has the shortest turnaround time at around 2 days.
Our tool aggregates data for all labs on a rolling basis to ensure users are getting the most up-to-date information on which facilities offer the fastest results.
Our primary goal is to enhance the patient experience. By providing transparency and choice, we empower patients to make informed decisions about where to get their diagnostics done. No longer do they need to blindly choose a lab and hope for the best. With our tool, they can select a lab that aligns with their needs and time constraints.
The future of healthcare is digital, and tools like ours are paving the way for a more patient-centric approach. We believe that by focusing on the patient experience and providing valuable insights, we can make a significant difference in the healthcare journey of many.
