You Can Help Make a Difference


As the saying goes, it takes a village - or in this case, the laboratory community - to raise and maintain Lab Tests Online, and to increase awareness of the site. You can play a significant role in furthering the site's success. Here are a few ideas:

Sponsor the site. Lab Tests Online represents the best of corporate citizenship. Through the annual support of a growing number of companies, the site is able to reach an increasing number of patients and families with needed healthcare information, and at the same time increase the visibility of the laboratory as a vital component of the healthcare system. We are especially grateful to this year's Sponsors, who are listed to the right under the "Sponsors" tab.

Become a Partner. Laboratory organizations like those listed to the right under the "Partners" are the engine that makes Lab Tests Online one of the most respected health sites on the web. If you are a member of a professional society that is not yet a collaborating partner, encourage your leadership to support the site as a Partner.

Create a link from your organization's web site to Lab Tests Online (www.labtestsonline.org). Link to the home page or to pages deeper within the site. Linking is simple to do and very effective in generating traffic. We do not charge a fee. All links to Lab Tests Online should either open a new blank window or first clear all contents of the current window before loading the Lab Tests Online page.

If you do establish a link to our site, we request but do not require that a courtesy notification be submitted via our Contact Us form.

Write About the Site. Encourage the editor of your company’s employee and customer newsletters to write about Lab Tests Online. We would be happy to provide background material. If you see a story about the site, please let us know.

Mention the Site. Tell your patients, colleagues, and friends about Lab Tests Online. Remember, if you tell two people, and they each tell two people …. Results from our user survey suggest that 80% of users would recommend the site to others. And about 40% have already done so!

Distribute Promotional Displays. Photo of Lab Tests Online countertop display
If your organization has space in appropriate points of care, set up a Lab Tests Online promotional display. Ask your doctor to put up a display in his or her office. Give them to clients who have contact with healthcare consumers. We offer attractive 11"x14" displays that can be mounted on a wall or on a counter or table top. Each display includes a pocket that holds up to 100 4"x9" take-home inserts designed to allow a doctor to check off the tests prescribed so that the patient or caregiver can look them up online at home. Perfect for patient waiting rooms!

To order, please call AACC's Customer Service at (800) 892-1400 or use our Contact Us form. Be sure to include your name, shipping address, phone number, and the number of displays desired.
