When it comes to healthcare, patients are increasingly wanting to take control of their own health journeys. While they still seek out doctors’ wisdom and expertise, they’re researching more on their own and taking an active role as their own health advocate. Here’s a look at how Molecular Testing Labs (Molecular Testing Labs) supports patient empowerment. 

Knowledge Is Power 

One of the best tools in a healthcare toolkit is information, and one of the most accurate ways to gain information is with diagnostic testing. Even if a doctor evaluates you and assesses that you may have a certain condition based on the symptoms they’re seeing, it still remains an educated guess in most cases…until lab results confirm it. In order to determine the right next steps for healthcare, patients can undergo diagnostic screenings. From detection of low Vitamin D levels to elevated triglycerides to early signs of colorectal cancer and beyond, Molecular Testing Labs’s at home collection kits and results provide patients with an accurate, accessible way to find out more about their health so they can do something about it. 

The Need For Speed – And Privacy 

Oftentimes in medical situations, time is of the essence. The earlier you catch a problem, the more options you have and the more likely you can address and/or heal from it. Therefore, one of the most helpful health improvement tips for patients is to screen themselves early and often. Our at-home collection kits not only make this easy to do, but also offer quick turnaround times so they can get answers fast. 

Furthermore, at-home testing gives patients the privacy they deserve. Nobody wants to undergo sensitive medical testing in a public setting, and they don’t have to. Molecular has the data to prove this point.  Patients can instead take their kits home, perform the test in the comfort of their own home and then send it to the lab via the mail. Easy, fast, and private. 

Helping patients become their own health advocate is more important than ever. By providing them with Molecular Testing Labs’s at-home collection kits, patient empowerment is in your hands. Contact us if you’d like to learn more!
