New LabCorp At Home COVID-19 Test Collection Service

Convenient LabCorp At Home Service Aims to Help Patients Resume Health Care, Treatments, and Surgeries

LabCorp At Home is a new service aimed at helping doctors protect patients by testing them for COVID-19 before surgeries and other treatments.

Patients with elective surgeries – and those who are immunocompromised – can ill-afford COVID-19 related complications. LabCorp has made it easy to pre-test patients to ensure treatments and appointments can move forward with confidence.

The LabCorp At Home Service can be initiated by selecting the test order and entering the patient’s home address into LabCorp Link™ or some cloud-based EMR systems. A COVID-19 PCR test kit is sent overnight to the patient’s home for self-collection. The patient performs a simple nasal wipe using a foam swab and places the kit in a prepaid FedEx envelope for routing to LabCorp.

Results are delivered directly to the provider’s electronic medical record (EMR), making the process seamless for the ordering doctor and convenient for patients. The result provides physicians the information needed to make the appropriate clinical decision prior to proceeding with surgery or treatment.
