Reports utilize LabCorp testing data related to conditions that have co-morbidities with other serious diseases, including increased COVID-19 risk
BURLINGTON, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LabCorp (NYSE: LH), a leading global life sciences company deeply integrated in guiding patient care, has launched Insight Analytics™ reports that support provider organizations delivering improved care, both individually and on a population level, for a range of high-risk health conditions. The reports, which reflect LabCorp’s deep analytical expertise, combine national laboratory test values with patient demographics to help identify high-risk patients, close care gaps, and support the implementation of more effective treatment practices. Healthcare organizations and public health agencies can use the reports to implement more effective treatment practices to reduce risk levels for co-morbidities including COVID-19, reducing serious complications and the need for hospitalization.
Insight Analytics reports are available for conditions such as diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD). These conditions present significant risks on their own, are health co-morbidities for other diseases, and also indicate heightened risk for serious complications from COVID-19. Reports are also available for other conditions that impact hospitalizations, including community acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Insight Analytics reports are currently being used by organizations to support their care for patients who may be at greater risk due to COVID-19.
“LabCorp’s new Insight Analytics reports can help clinicians and health officials be better informed and provide more focused patient engagement, supporting better outcomes,” says Dot Adcock, M.D., LabCorp Diagnostics’ chief medical officer. “Laboratory testing and the vital information it provides is more important now than ever before, and is a central part of our mission to improve health and improve lives.”
“Laboratory testing influences a significant percentage of clinical decisions and plays an important role in improving care for patients with common, high-risk conditions,” says Brian Caveney, M.D., chief medical officer and president of LabCorp Diagnostics. “The past several months have demonstrated very clearly that accurate and high-quality diagnostics are vital. Our analytical depth, combined expertise in diagnostics and drug development, and tools like our Insight Analytics reports, show that LabCorp is uniquely positioned to help clinicians address pervasive health challenges, including our current COVID-19 health crisis.”
More information about the Insight Analytics reports is available at www.labcorp.com/labcorp-insight-analytics. Also available there are Insight Analytics Nationwide Snapshots for diabetes prevalence and antibiotic resistance in bladder infections. These Snapshot reports illustrate statistically relevant disease trends on a national and state level using LabCorp data.
