Improved Patient Care

Our goal

Our goal is to improve patient care by helping physicians reduce patient misdiagnosis, mistreatment, and overtreatment. We provide physicians with test results based on the active state of targeted cells within a patient’s biopsy. This enhanced insight enables physicians to make more informed and definitive clinical decisions, leading to improved patient outcomes.

MelaPro Dx

Melanoma affects a large portion of the population. Nearly 15% of the suspected cases each year cannot be accurately diagnosed using traditional methods. For these cases, a more in depth look at the biopsy is needed to render an accurate diagnosis. Our test offers physicians that insight by generating a molecular fingerprint of the patient's biopsy. This molecular information is then analyzed using artificial intelligence to derive a test result that improves the physician’s ability to accurately diagnose a patient’s lesion as benign or malignant.

MelaPro Dx is new, and physicians may not yet be aware of the test. Your physician can learn more about MelaPro Dx by emailing us at info@newriverlabs.com or calling us at (800) 850-5675.

EsophaPro Px

Once a patient is diagnosed with esophageal cancer, the conventional treatment plan is chemoradiotherapy followed by extensive surgery to remove all or part of the esophagus. Patients that fully respond to chemoradiotherapy (i.e., cancer cells are eliminated) do not need to undergo the subsequent surgery. No test exists, however, to help physicians distinguish between patients that will likely experience a full response to chemoradiotherapy and those that will likely not. This inability of physicians to predict whether a patient will fully respond to chemoradiotherapy results in a significant portion of esophageal cancer patients undergoing unnecessary surgery. We are developing a test that provides physicians with predictive knowledge about whether a patient is likely to respond to chemoradiotherapy. We believe this test has the potential to reduce the number of unnecessary, high risk surgeries.

Payment Methods

New River Labs accepts all insurance plans. When a New River Labs test is ordered, the physician provides us with the necessary insurance and billing information so that we can work on the patient’s behalf to seek payment coverage from the relevant insurance plan. We will seek pre-authorization approval from, and submit claims to, the insurance provider.

Patient care is our top priority, and we endeavor to make our ancillary diagnostic and prognostic tests available to all patients. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us at billing@newriverlabs.com.
