DLO is pleased to provide a variety of services to our clients.
STAT & ROUTINE TESTING
At DLO, we are committed to providing the highest possible quality of services in every aspect of our operations. That’s why 95% of all testing submitted is performed in Oklahoma, providing faster turnaround time and reporting times. And with the help of our Quality Assurance and Six Sigma departments, we make sure all testing procedures are performed at the highest standards set by our governing organizations – the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CLIA) and the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
Both Microbiology and Virology testing is performed in-house at our Oklahoma City core laboratory facility. The Microbiology department is open 24/7, ensuring lab results will be delivered as soon as possible.
DLO offers a complete menu of cervical cancer screening options. We provide everything from routine Pap tests to HPV testing to liquid- and computer-assisted cytology. Our in-state testing allows for excellent turnaround times, which leads to a sound diagnosis. In addition, through our partnership with AmeriPath, physicians are able to easily and effectively correlate cytology results with biopsies.
LABORATORY MANAGEMENT CAPABILITIES
By going beyond the traditional clinical laboratory service offerings, DLO provides hospitals with the finest level of expertise regarding laboratory operations. This includes the provision of full management services. In fact, DLO currently manages 13 hospital laboratories.
Laboratory management allows DLO to incorporate our quality services, our Six Sigma methodologies, and our overall economies of scale; benefits hospitals would be unlikely to otherwise enjoy. Laboratory management is an important component of our service offerings and sets DLO apart from other laboratory service providers in the state.
DLO has more than 50 Patient Service Centers (PSC’s) and draw sites located across Oklahoma. Whether you live in the heart of Oklahoma City or on the great plains of Woodward, there’s a PSC nearby. Once you reach that Patient Service Center, our goal at DLO is to provide service to our patients within 15 minutes of their arrival. In fact, our average wait time is just under 8 minutes.
Our trained couriers are equipped with the proper supplies, such as dry ice, to transport your specimens appropriately. As part of our commitment to our clients and patients, we have implemented a Specimen Tracking system to ensure the safety and integrity of every specimen. Using a mobile tracking device, they scan and track each specimen every step of the way until it arrives safely in our lab. This means that patients’ lab results will be delivered quickly and accurately.
A new service DLO is now proud to offer our clients is convenient online scheduling for specimen pickups. It’s part of our commitment to creating new and better ways to support you in the important work of caring for patients. Click here to learn more about this valuable service.
