Partnering for more convenient
patient-centered care

For patients with red blood cell disorders, managing their day-to-day health care needs can mean monthly blood transfusions requiring frequent blood work and lengthy hospital visits.

LifeLabs is partnering with the University Health Network (UHN) in Toronto to provide patients with the ability to book a quick, 15-minute blood collection appointment at three conveniently located LifeLabs patient service centres (PSCs) in the community. Once the hospital receives the sample from LifeLabs, they work to find a match prior to the transfusion date – saving patients valuable time, undue hassle and travel costs.

“The collection of red blood cell cross-match samples by LifeLabs has been warmly embraced by patients and significantly improved workflow for both the hospital blood bank and outpatient Medical Day Unit,” says Dr. Jacob Pendergraft, Associate Medical Director, Blood Transfusion Service at UHN.
