BURLINGTON, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LabCorp® (NYSE: LH), a leading global life sciences company, today announced the launch of Pixel by LabCorp℠, the latest innovation in the company’s strategy to create a leading and differentiated consumer experience. Pixel by LabCorp enhances patient convenience by offering consumer-initiated wellness testing featuring sample self-collection anytime and anywhere, and personalized online results.
“We are seeing a profound shift in consumers’ attitudes and expectations about how they want to access healthcare,” said David P. King, LabCorp’s chairman and CEO. “Consumers are focusing on monitoring and improving their health and wellness, rather than reacting to symptoms of disease. Pixel by LabCorp represents a powerful new tool for consumers to manage their health by initiating high-quality LabCorp testing where and when they choose.”
To use Pixel by LabCorp, consumers purchase test packages at Pixel.LabCorp.com, and typically receive a sample self-collection kit within two to three days. The test packages include a physician review and order, which is required for all Pixel by LabCorp testing and is seamlessly integrated into the overall digital experience. The consumer collects the sample and returns it in the postage-paid, pre-addressed kit box to LabCorp’s CAP-accredited and CLIA-certified lab. Within two to three days of the lab receiving the sample, LabCorp posts an easy-to-read test report to the consumer’s online account.
At Pixel.LabCorp.com, consumers can purchase test packages with home-based sample collection, beginning with screens for wellness, heart health, diabetes, and colorectal cancer. Additional test offerings are planned for the near future.
Pixel by LabCorp is available to consumers 18 or older in 45 states. It is currently not offered in Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, or Rhode Island.
In addition to Pixel by LabCorp, LabCorp’s consumer-focused tools and services include the LabCorp at Walgreens patient service centers, which will expand to more than 600 locations over the next four years; the LabCorp|Patient online portal and LabCorp|PreCheck, which provide enhanced, online appointment scheduling; the LabCorp|Express tablet-based system for expedited check-in at LabCorp sites and access to LabCorp test results; and access to LabCorp test results in Apple Health Records on iPhone®.
