When most people think of mobile phlebotomy, they think of a company that provides blood draws and other services to people who are home bound—a company that sends phlebotomists to the homes of very elderly people or those in hospice care. While this is a good part of what we do at VeniExpress, our San Diego mobile phlebotomy services are not just for the home bound. There are many individuals who can benefit greatly from using a mobile phlebotomy service.
Avoid Crowded Patient Service Centers
During the Coronavirus pandemic, many were introduced to mobile phlebotomy for the first time. In a time when people felt unsafe leaving their homes—especially to go to a hospital or patient service center where their chances of coming into contact with an infected person increased—many people began looking for alternatives for their medial care. In some cases, patients were able to take care of their needs through telemedicine, but since things like blood draws can’t be done remotely via Zoom or some other online platform, they began turning to in-home services.
Our mobile phlebotomy company has seen a sharp uptick in business since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic. Part of this uptick was due to some insurance companies temporarily covering the fee for mobile phlebotomy services. However, we anticipate that even after the threat of the Coronavirus subsides, those who were introduced to mobile phlebotomy will continue to use the service. Why? Convenience.
Make Better Use of Your Valuable Time
These days, everyone is busy. They have a million things they need to do, as well as many that they just want to do. There never seems to be enough hours in a day. One of the last things you probably want to do is spend your time in a waiting room when you need to get your blood drawn. Even if you make an appointment, there is almost always at least some sort of wait before you can be seen by a phlebotomist.
With mobile phlebotomy, the wait time is eliminated! One of our highly trained phlebotomists will come directly to you—either to your home or even to your place of work. He or she will be in and out in no time and deliver the specimen directly to your laboratory of choice. Our team takes great care in handling the specimen to ensure its integrity is maintained in transit.
If you’re the type of person who has ever used a grocery delivery service or had a meal delivered, mobile phlebotomy is for you! It allows you to make the best use of your time, so you can take care of more things on your to-do list, or maybe even enjoy some much-needed down time.
When mobile phlebotomy isn’t medically necessary, there is a fee for service, but just like any other service you use out of convenience, most people will tell you the cost is well worth it.
