The University awarded a contract for clinical laboratory referral testing.
Clinical laboratory referral testing for UI Health patients that cannot be performed in-house.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical at a university-operated health care center or dispensary that provides care, treatment, and medications for students, faculty and staff (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) When the laboratory is unable to perform necessary testing for outpatients, referral laboratories are used. There is currently a results interface with LabCorp allowing for quicker turnaround time for results and better care for our patients.
