Rutgers University is teaming up with Quest Diagnostics to provide no-cost laboratory tests over the next year to diagnose and manage acute and chronic diseases for uninsured and underinsured patients of the university’s H.O.P.E. Clinic in Plainfield, N.J. This will include lab tests for chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, sexually transmitted infections and Lyme disease. Under the program, clinicians send laboratory orders directly to a nearby Quest patient service center, which allows patients to visit immediately after their appointment. The results are transmitted directly back to the clinic for follow up with the patient. To read the full story.
