Medical laboratories are always searching for ways to become more efficient. However, most labs tend to focus on improving processes inside the lab walls and don’t consider how new technologies could improve their outreach courier services. In cases like these, labs are usually still running courier operations by a manual process for one of three reasons:
1. That’s the way it’s always been done, and it works.
2. We don’t have the budget for a courier management platform.
3. We don’t have the time or resources to implement a new courier system.
Labs demonstrating sophistication and maturity work towards developing consistency and reliability not only in main lab operations, but within their medical courier system as well.

But medical courier pickups and deliveries are even more important because the speed and accuracy of transporting specimens can be the difference between saving a life and a catastrophic delay or medical error.read more
If your customers can receive pickup/delivery notifications for personal online purchases, how much more important is it to provide pickup/delivery notifications for patients’ medical samples? Are these samples any less important to track?read more
In preparation for the roll-out of MCE 3.0 (which includes improved screen layouts and other functionalities) in 2021, we thought it would be interesting for outreach medical labs to understand how MCE came to be and what can be expected in MCE 3.0.
