Our skilled phlebotomists are responsible for specimen collection and preparation for transport to the Beth Israel Deaconess Clinical Laboratory for testing.
As soon as testing is completed, data/results are available for BIDMC and affiliated providers to review in our online medical record system. Patient reports are printed daily by the phlebotomists at the site, and distributed to physicians practicing outside of the BIDMC network.
