We are the nation’s premier mobile phlebotomy service, and we have partnered with diagnostic labs, testing facilities, and research centers across the country to help you expand what you can offer to your patients.

What Can We Do For You?

For Providers, we offer in-office and at-home blood draws and other specimen collection for both routine diagnostics and specialty tests. Because we have intimate experience with most major labs, including LabCorp and Quest, we are able to collect samples from your patients for the labs that you choose. 

Our Practitioner Clients range from…

Naturopaths Concierge Medicine Functional Medicine Sports Medicine
Cardiologists Gerontologists Pulmonologists Oncologists
Endocrinologists Nephrologists Neurologists And many more!

Our phlebotomists are trained in each lab’s requirements, including methods of collection, specimen handling, processing, and delivery. In addition, when collecting at-home or specialty kits our phlebotomists will ensure that they are carefully packaged and dropped off at the appropriate laboratory service center or shipping carrier provided.

Finally, we offer two separate services that will perfectly fit the needs of your particular practice. We are available on-demand, on a per draw, by appointment basis, or you can schedule to have our technician at your facility for either half-day or whole-day sessions.

NPPN Phlebotomy Services

MobiLab Express™

MobiLab Express™ is our on-demand solution for any medical provider or group practice needing specimen collection support for individual patients and is priced on a per draw basis. This service provides your patients with full-service specimen collection support. 

Our phlebotomists meet each patient at the designated service location, home, or office at the scheduled appointment time, perform the specimen collection services, and conduct accurate and timely delivery of the specimens. Multiple patient requests are accommodated but can be scheduled no more than 15 minutes apart.

The Specimen PROs™

The Specimen PROs™ is a temporary staffing solution for medical providers and researchers who pay a flat fee per session of service. Our highly trained phlebotomists will travel to your facility for scheduled sessions. During the session, the phlebotomist will provide services on-site for as many patients as the schedule will allow. This service model allows for the most efficient use of time for small and medium-sized groups of patients.

What Can We Do For Your Patients?

Our mobile phlebotomists will come directly to your patients. This is extremely beneficial for many patients that are elderly, have limited mobility, have serious health conditions, or simply lack reliable transportation. 

For many patients and their families, the idea of going to a lab is a nerve-wracking experience. Not only must transportation be arranged, but then they must contend with traffic only to wait hours in a lab for their name to be called. They then often have a poor experience with inexperienced technicians that are trying to rush through their job due to assembly-line conditions. 

Experiences like these have given phlebotomists a bad reputation. In addition, these negative experiences have caused many patients to postpone getting their lab work done which in turn restricts their access to quality healthcare, and yields poor care outcomes. 

We think that this common experience is unacceptable. Those with limited mobility or severe health conditions should not be forced to risk their safety by going to a lab in this day and age. Instead, we come to them.

Your patients will never again have to step foot in a lab, deal with an unsympathetic and unqualified technician, worry about samples being mislabeled or improperly collected, or risk exposure to infection.

What Makes Us Different?

We believe in patient-centered care. Our technicians are not only highly-skilled, competent, and exceptionally trained, but they are compassionate and caring individuals. We’re patients too, and we understand how important it is to give compassionate and understanding care.

With the NPPN, your patients can expect to see the same phlebotomist every time that they have their blood drawn because we’ll assign them a caseworker phlebotomist. This is the ideal solution for patients that require long-term and consistent monitoring.

This not only helps the patient become more comfortable with the process, especially in the case of frequent blood draws, but it also provides a more efficient and pleasant experience all around. Our phlebotomists specialize in difficult and hard-to-find veins, anxiety, and needle phobias. They excel at understanding and assuaging patients’ fears and concerns when it comes to getting their blood drawn. We never overbook our appointments which allows us to spend the time we need with your patients to ensure a pleasant and efficient experience.

Unlike other third-party phlebotomy services, we directly employ our phlebotomists instead of using subpar independent contractors. This allows us to ensure that our technicians are up-to-date on all of their certifications, licensure, and continuing education requirements.

In addition, because they are our employees, we are able to supply our mobile phlebotomists with state-of-the-art equipment that lets them excel at their jobs. Together, this enables us to hold them to a higher standard of patient-centered care.

Helping Practitioners Navigate COVID-19

Everyone on our staff is fully vaccinated for COVID-19

The COVID-19 Public Health Emergency has affected all aspects of medicine, industry, and research. The COVID-19 Public Health Emergency has affected all aspects of medicine, industry, and research. 

But NPPN has adapted to the challenge. In March of 2020, we implemented our pandemic response plan, which includes, in addition to all standard biosafety precautions, the CDC and OSHA recommended heightened contact precautions, airborne precautions, and eye protection (e.g., goggles or face shields) to protect patients and our technicians from exposure to the virus. As well, we have established a workforce monitoring program to ensure the safety and health of patients and our front-line personnel. This response plan has enabled us to maintain maximum flexibility while responding to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Since March of 2020, many of our healthcare provider clientele have leaned heavily on us with increasing caseloads of their at-risk patient populations. We are actively engaged in providing direct mitigation of virus spread by enabling these patients to stay home, out of clinic environments, and out of laboratory waiting rooms, while continuing to maintain continuity of care and diagnostic monitoring regimes.

Adapting to COVID-19

NPPN has adapted to this extraordinary challenge to ensure that our communities are kept safe and healthy while maintaining continuity of care and diagnostic monitoring regimes, as well as supporting the critical research needed to defeat this virus.

Our team has been specializing in specimen collection for home-bound and limited mobility individuals for decades. We have the experience and skill required to support your organization and your community of patients during this challenging time.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • addWhat services do you offer?

    There are two types of service available for healthcare practitioners of all types.

    Our MobiLab Express service is our, in-home, by appointment, specimen collection and delivery service. We collect the specimens required, according to the specific protocol provided by you or the lab*, then we deliver those specimens to a local drop off location (typically a lab service location or shipping carrier location, as instructed).

    Our Specimen Pros service is designed to be an on-site, on-demand, specialized supplemental staffing solution. If your residents need periodic or ongoing blood draws or other specimen collection for diagnostic testing, our expert technicians will travel to your facility and perform the specimen collection, processing, and then deliver the specimens to the appropriate laboratory for testing*.

    *NOTE: We are not a lab and we do not conduct any lab testing. We do not have “preferred” lab partners as all labs are prospective customers. All specimens are delivered to the lab of your choice.

  • addWe have lab kits, can you help?

    YES! We are very familiar with a vast array of diagnostic lab kits and specialty testing services. Our technician will collect the specimens, process them according to the kit instructions, package and drop off the lab kit to the designated shipping carrier (usually FedEx, UPS, USPS).

  • addDo you take health insurance?

    We work with many insurance plans, including managed care plans. However, we cannot bill Medicare or Medicaid directly. For any resident who is not a covered member of a participating health plan, we can provide an insurance claim form, with appropriate billing codes, so the resident can get reimbursed. Alternatively, in the same way, the facility may be able to bill the patient insurance plan for the services provided, to recover some or all of the cost of the services.

    In scenarios where the patient is not covered for the services, or insurance billing options are otherwise not desired, we have frequently arranged to bill either your patient directly, or your practice a cost effective flat rate per draw for our MobiLab Express service, or an hourly rate for our Specimen Pros service.

    Note, in most cases the resident must be limited mobility, home bound, or have some other medical reason necessitating coverage for in-home care services, in order to receive coverage or reimbursement. Otherwise, services may be provided on a fee for service basis.

  • addWhat does the service cost?

    Our services are easy to access and designed to be flexible to meet your needs. There are two types of service available to you:

    Our MobiLab Express service is our, in-home, by appointment, specimen collection and delivery service. We collect the specimens required, according to the specific protocol provided by you or the lab*, then we deliver those specimens to whatever lab they need to go to. The typical fee for our MobiLab Express service is currently $99 on a per draw, per patient basis.

    Our Specimen Pros service is designed to be an on-site, on-demand, specialized, supplemental staffing solution. If your practice is in need of periodic or ongoing blood draws or other specimen collection for diagnostic testing, our expert technicians will travel to your facility and perform the specimen collection, processing, and then deliver the specimens to the appropriate laboratory for testing*. The usual fee for our Specimen Pros service is presently $350 per technician, per 4 hour session. There may
    be additional materials and/or mileage costs depending on your particular needs.

    *NOTE: We are not a lab and we do not conduct any lab testing. We do not have “preferred” lab partners as all labs are prospective customers. All specimens are delivered to the lab of your choice.

  • addWhere do you have services available?

    We have technicians in all of the major metropolitan areas in the United States. In addition, our team is adept at recruiting and training field service talent to meet our customers’ needs. We are accustomed to scaling up to meet demand, where and when needed. If you are not sure if we have coverage an area where you need service, please feel free to reach out to our operations support team. We are happy to help.

  • addWhat is your availability?

    Unlike many other similar services, our technicians are our employees, not contractors. Our central operations team controls and coordinates all service availability and scheduling. The service calendar is usually business hours, Monday through Friday. However, scheduling is in part dependent on shipping or delivery logistics – where and when the specimens collected need to be sent. Our service calendar usually books out about a week in advance. Generally speaking, services can usually be scheduled within a few days to one week of receipt of your request.

  • addHow do we schedule services?

    Depending on your needs, a service agreement may be required. Service can be scheduled using our online secure form available here, or call us at (415) 687-4854.
