A patient-centered, value-based approach to testing

Our Special Coagulation Laboratory has been at the forefront of patient-centered and value-based diagnostic laboratory testing, research, and patient management for nearly 90 years. Led by a multidisciplinary team of physicians, the laboratory offers a broad repertoire of coagulation tests covering a wide spectrum of bleeding and thrombosis disorders.

An algorithmic and cost-effective
way of testing

Coagulation-focused algorithms developed collaboratively among physicians, pathologists, laboratorians, and genetic counselors are available. These algorithms recommend approaches for diagnosis of specific diseases and assist in treatment and monitoring of patient care. In addition, they can guide proper and cost-effective test utilization (e.g., activated protein C resistance testing with reflex to factor V Leiden analysis).
