Bio-Reference Laboratories, Inc., a clinical testing laboratory, offers testing, information and related services to physician offices, clinics, hospitals, employers and governmental units. The company offers a comprehensive list of laboratory testing services utilized by healthcare providers in the detection, diagnosis, evaluation, monitoring and treatment of diseases. The company primarily focuses on esoteric testing, molecular diagnostics, anatomical pathology, genetics, women’s health and correctional health care. The company processes approximately 7.8 million laboratory test requisitions each year. The company has a network of approximately 116 patient service centers located in the northeast (primarily in New York metropolitan super-regional area) for collection of patient specimens. The company conducts business in most New York State counties, as well as in most of New Jersey and Maryland, as well as some parts of Pennsylvania, Delaware and Connecticut. The company primarily offers laboratory services to physician offices in these areas with an infrastructure that includes a comprehensive logistical department, extensive phlebotomy services and phlebotomy draw stations scattered around its geographic area. In October 2012, the company launched Laboratorio Buena Salud, a testing laboratory dedicated to serving Spanish-speaking populations in the United States. Its business would be conducted in Spanish, including patient and physician interactions. In addition to its clinical testing operations, the company operates a clinical knowledge management service through its PSIMedica business unit. This system uses customer data from laboratory results, pharmaceutical data, claims data and other data sources to provide administrative and clinical decision support systems that enable its customers to provide healthcare to their populations. The company also operates a Web-based connectivity portal solution for laboratories and physicians through its CareEvolve subsidiary. The company also markets and licenses this connectivity solution to other laboratories throughout the country. Testing Services The company’s laboratory testing business consists of routine testing and esoteric testing. Routine Testing Routine tests measure various health parameters, such as the functions of the heart, kidney, liver, thyroid and other organs. Below is an abbreviated list of some commonly ordered routine tests: blood cell counts, cholesterol levels, pregnancy, substance abuse, and urinalysis. The company performs these tests at its main processing facility in Elmwood Park, New Jersey. The company operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The company performs and reports most routine tests within 24 hours. Tests results are delivered via driver or electronically. Esoteric Tests The company also performs esoteric tests that require equipment and materials, personnel and professional attention. These tests are ordered less frequently than routine tests. Esoteric tests are related to the following medical fields: endocrinology (the study of glands and their hormone secretions), genetics (the study of chromosomes, genes and their protein products), immunology (the study of the immune system), microbiology (the study of microscopic forms of life), HIV-related tests, molecular diagnostics (the study of genetic content for disease information), oncology (the study of abnormal cell growth), serology (the study of body fluids), and toxicology (the study of chemicals and drugs and their effects on the body). PSIMedica—Medical Information The company’s PSIMedica business unit is based on a clinical knowledge management, or CKM, system that uses data derived from various disparate sources to provide both administrative and clinical analysis of a population. The source data consists of enrollment (demographic) data, claims data, pharmacy data, laboratory data and any other data that may be available. The system uses algorithms to cleanse and configure the data to facilitate comprehensive and meaningful analysis. In addition to the basic queries provided by the system, PSIMedica Quality Indicators, or PQI, provide com
