Physicians Wellness Network Offers Online Laboratory Testing Services On Google Health
Date:2/23/2009

webLAB™ ensures medical and legal compliance for consumer-selected lab tests

Jackson, Wyo. -- Physicians Wellness Network (PWN), the developer of webLAB, the first online consumer portal that connects consumers to laboratory testing services in a medically and legally compliant manner, today announced its integration with Google Health™, http://www.Google.com/Health

Consumers no longer need to go through the lengthy and often expensive process of scheduling multiple doctor appointments with several co-pays to get basic wellness tests such as a heart risk assessment. Instead they can select up to four basic lab tests online, starting at $54.95, using the webLAB wizard located in the Google Health Services Directory. The tests consumers order are conducted in a manner that fully complies with state and federal regulations. In addition, test results are delivered within a few days and can be stored in the consumer's Google Health account.

"webLAB makes it safe, easy and affordable for people to directly order lab tests online, then store and track the results electronically on Google Health," said John Eastman, director of business development for PWN. "With President Obama calling for a national system of electronic health records within five years, webLAB's integration with Google Health will provide momentum toward this initiative."

Google Health allows consumers to store and manage their medical records online, in one central place for free. Consumers can build online health profiles, import medical records and connect to online health services such as webLAB.

After a consumer selects one of four lab tests using webLAB on Google Health, a PWN physician provides prescriptive authority for the test to be conducted. The consumer then has their blood sample drawn at a local lab and a result is produced. A PWN physician reviews and releases the result to the consumer within a few days so that it can be imported into the consumer's Google Health account. A PWN representative follows up with the consumer in the event a critical value is presented in the result.

PWN offers four basic wellness tests with webLAB: Diabetes Risk Assessment; General Wellness; Heart Risk Assessment; and, Prostate Cancer Risk Assessment.
