Yesterday morning, I went to the local lab to get a few follow-up blood tests done. I was very amused at the system this particular chain of labs had. They had small franchisee collection centers. I paid the collection center and they sent my samples onwards to a central processing lab. When collecting my samples, they took my phone number, my name, and the referring doctor’s name in addition to the name of the tests I wanted.
In the evening, I got an SMS with my report ID and a password. I just had to visit their website and I could download a PDF report of my lab report. Truly, we’re living in the future!
