ClearPoint Diagnostics Laboratories Chosen as In-Network Provider for United Healthcare


8/20/2012 11:01:58 AM

LEWISVILLE, Texas, Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearPoint Diagnostic Laboratories, which provides physicians with routine, anatomic and reference laboratory tests in a central Dallas Fort Worth location, is pleased to announce that it has become a United Healthcare Service Provider.

United Healthcare will now cover esoteric and general laboratory tests, performed locally by ClearPoint in its 130,000 square foot facility, one of the largest labs in the Dallas Fort Worth area.

Because the vast majority of laboratory tests will now be performed locally, patients covered by United Healthcare can now receive more timely test results from an in-network provider. Over ninety percent of tests ordered by a physician are performed on site, often on the same day they are received.

"ClearPoint will provide DFW physicians with a single, local source for virtually every lab test they order," said Gary L. Smith, Ph.D., Chief Operating Officer of ClearPoint Diagnostic Laboratories. "Patients who have their tests performed by ClearPoint are less likely to be subject to lost samples and are able to receive test results faster, which often results in faster diagnosis and treatment." continued Smith.

About ClearPoint

ClearPoint provides efficient pre and post analytical support to physicians in the North Texas community to help decrease the costs associated with the episode of care, and to improve the quality of patient outcomes. ClearPoint works with physicians to integrate laboratory data with their electronic medical records (EMR) systems and to streamline patient care. The company provides client services 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, with patient service centers and flexible courier services that utilize an advanced GPS specimen tracking system.
