Healthcare Reminders, Podcasts Added


November 5, 2010

November 5, 2010--Two new features were added to Lab Tests Online recently.

The first addition is a set of links to podcasts on topics that provide supplemental information to a number of test topics covered by Lab Tests Online. The podcasts are produced by Clinical Chemistry, the leading journal published by AACC. Links to the podcasts are typically placed under the Related Pages section of the relevant articles.

The other new feature is a second set of links that enable Lab Tests Online users to request emails that remind them to get their cholesterol tested or to be screened for colon cancer, for example. There is even a reminder for blood donation. In all, buttons for seven different reminders have been placed in contextually appropriate locations on the site. The MyHealthCare reminder service is developed and supported by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), a Lab Tests Online Collaborating Partner.
