New Diagnostic Lab Test Improves Patient Outcomes

Laboratory at Community Memorial Hospital

 

The laboratory at Community Memorial Hospital has added a new molecular diagnostic testing platform, which offers a comprehensive approach to disease prevention and infection control. CMH is the first hospital in Ventura County offering this test.

The GeneXpert System enables our medical providers to identify and treat diseases much earlier than ever before. This helps improve patient outcomes; reduce cost-of-care and length of stay; develop efficient isolation protocols based on proper identification of contamination risks; and improve antibiotic stewardship.
