WHAT IS DIRECT ACCESS TESTING

SIMPLE . CONFIDENTIAL . INEXPENSIVE

Much like signing up for lab work at the local Health fair, Direct Access Testing is patient initiated testing which Haxtun Hospital District can perform without a physician's order at a discounted rate to the patient.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS

It's 8:00 AM and Little Johnny isn't feeling well. You've got a busy day planned and you just want to make sure he doesn't have Strep Throat before you rearrange your entire day.
1. Swing by the front registration desk at HHD to fill out and pay for the Strep Test.
2. Proceed to the HHD Lab for the test.
3. HHD Lab will provide YOU with the results on the spot!


WHO GETS THE LAB RESULTS:

You are the only person that gets the lab results from your visit. The Direct Access Lab Test results do not go into your health file and are not submitted to a HHD Provider for review. Because you are the only person that will receive a copy of your lab results, we recommend that you schedule an appointment with a Primary Care provider to review your results.

Haxtun Hospital District laboratory will perform the testing and provide you with your results, however, the HHD Lab Department cannot interpret or treat you for the results obtained through Direct Access Testing.

WHAT WE RECOMMEND:

Now that you know what the test results are, it's always a good idea to review them with a Primary Care Provider.
If Little Johnny's test results come back positive, you'll more than likely want to schedule an appointment with a Primary Care Provider of your choice for a treatment plan. Our Family Medicine Clinic would be happy to schedule and appointment for you.
