Iggbo and New Century Labs Partner to Help Prevent and Treat Potential Diseases Early
Monday, December 18, 2017
Iggbo, a modern care coordination platform, and New Century Labs, the leading provider of direct-to-consumer blood testing, have announced a strategic partnership to help make life saving blood tests accessible to everyone at an affordable price. New Century Labs empowers patients with access to on-demand medical laboratory testing ordered online and custom tailored to individual needs. Iggbo will provide the technology for New Century to digitally dispatch high-quality blood draw specialists for specimen collection at the most convenient time and place for the patient.
"The mission of New Century Labs is to help individuals take better control of their healthcare and ultimately to prevent and treat potential diseases early," said Adel Morgan, CEO of New Century Labs. "Our partnership with Iggbo will allow us to access our customers in the easiest and most convenient location possible for them. Exceptional customer care and patient experience will make it easier than ever before to prevent disease before it occurs."
Since its launch, Iggbo has offered on-demand specimen collection and other care in locations that are selected by patients around the country. Iggbo also operates a growing network of brick-and-mortar care locations in over 40 major markets.
"Iggbo makes personalized medicine possible by allowing our partners to digitally dispatch a specialist from our network to a patient's home, a physician's office, or to our network of care locations throughout the US," said Nuno Valentine, CEO of Iggbo.
The partnership will allow New Century Labs to leverage Iggbo's network of on-demand specialists and its brick-and-mortar network as a way to offer customers added convenience and personalized care. In addition, Iggbo's award-winning Procedure Intelligence technology will help improve the efficiency and logistics of every care experience.
Leveraging the Iggbo dashboard, New Century Labs will be able to place a request for a blood draw and can keep track of every stage of an appointment no matter where it is delivered. Once an appointment has been set at the patient's desired location, a series of reminders take place – email, text, and automated phone calls – to ensure appointments are never missed. Every sample is digitally monitored, tracked, and immediately provided to the laboratory. Iggbo will provide real-time information about the status of each appointment—when it is accepted and confirmed, when a specialist is on the way, and when a blood draw or other care service is started and completed. As a result, the Iggbo and New Century Labs partnership will save time and money while improving compliance and patient outcomes.
