McLaren CareNow offers Lab Services

Are your patients experiencing issues with lab access? MPP has been made aware of limited availability of McLaren lab draw stations. Potential impacts of a delay in lab services includes suboptimal disease management, poorer patient outcomes and a delay in quality metric gaps in care closures. As always, patients should be encouraged to utilize McLaren services whenever possible. To better serve our patients and to support our providers, MPP and McLaren Health Management Group would like to make you aware of a potential solution.
