A New Look for Lab Tests Online
Since its launch in 2001, AACC’s Lab Tests Online (LTO) has been a reliable source of health information for the general public, serving more than 325 million users globally. Now, this resource has a new look after undergoing an 18-month redesign to improve its functionality and make it more mobile-friendly.
“LTO is recognized as a leading and trusted resource for empowering patients and the public. Its resources are intended to help patients navigate the testing process, provide context for the tests they may have had done, and promote better understanding of their test results,” Shannon Haymond, director for clinical chemistry and mass spectrometry at Lurie Children’s in Chicago and a member of LTO’s editorial review board, told CLN Stat.
Healthcare professionals also look to LTO to learn about lab tests and associated conditions, Haymond said. “Beyond educating on specific tests and conditions, LTO provides general information on the field of laboratory medicine and highlights the contributions we make to patient care,” she said.
