Our Laboratorio Buena Salud division was launched in 2012 as the first nationwide laboratory service dedicated exclusively to Spanish-speaking providers and patients. It was developed to improve access to care and quality of care by assisting physicians who treat patients in predominantly Hispanic communities. This division of our laboratory operations ushers in a new level of service to a traditionally underserved segment of the country’s population, where disparities in healthcare persist for those who do not speak proficient English. All services of the laboratory–including patient care, educational literature, customer service and billing–are provided in Spanish.
BioReference has a network of patient service centers that serves our unique brand entities, including GenPath, Laboratorio Buena Salud and GeneDx. Each patient service center is designed from top to bottom with patient comfort in mind, and courteous and professional phlebotomists are dedicated to delivering a positive experience to each patient.
4Kscore combines four prostate-specific biomarkers with clinical information to provide a male patient with an accurate and personalized measure of his risk for aggressive prostate cancer. The 4Kscore can be used prior to biopsy, or after a negative biopsy, and can predict the likelihood of cancer spreading to other parts of the body in the next 20 years.
