With the flu season in the United States imminent, the medical world is currently busy prepping up to fight against the annual outbreak of influenza. Prominent clinical and pathology lab in New Jersey, Sunrise Diagnostic Laboratory, has gone a notch up this time. As assured by Mohammed Naeem, the lab is fully prepared for the upcoming season of viruses with the newest technology of the medical field.
Besides being the founder of the diagnostic center, Mr. Naeem chairs its responsibilities and endeavors to serve the people with his adept leadership and efficiency. He is also the CEO of several other treatment centers across the nation. Through his expanding businesses, the passionate entrepreneur provides employment to more than 500 people and serves numerous patients. His institutes have succeeded in treating many with Hepatitis C and offer HIV medication to those in need.
We had the opportunity to speak to Mohammed Naeem, the man whose relentless efforts have made headlines several times in the past. Here’s the excerpt of what he revealed about their preparedness for the flu season of 2022.
1. What would be the expected intensity of the upcoming flu season?
This year owing to the unnerving Southern Hemisphere’s flu activity, we are expecting severe and high levels of influenza. Most people take flu lightly; however, the viruses can lead to sepsis, pneumonia and millions of other secondary complications which can be hazardous for both adults and children.
2. How is Sunrise Diagnostic Laboratory prepared to brace it in 2022?
Well, vaccinations are the obvious protective shields recommended by the World Health Organization. Apart from that, proper diagnosis of the diseases is crucial to provide appropriate treatment. Sunrise Diagnostic Laboratory, being one of the leading clinics in NJ, is completely prepared to offer more precise diagnosis with the latest medical technology.
3. How will the new technology make the difference?
The new technology is capable of detecting flu/RSV or respiratory virus/COVID-19 virus as well as monkey pox from a single swab only. It makes the testing process easier by reducing discomfort and making it affordable for patients. Amid the rush that we have been experiencing since COVID-19, minimizing the total number of swabs taken to test flu is a major step that Sunrise Group has taken. On the part of the clinic, the advanced technology does enhance our lab efficiency by lowing resources.
4. Besides the new technology, what else does Sunrise Diagnostic Laboratory offer?
In New Jersey, SDL is currently the fastest growing regional healthcare group bringing one of the most extensive in-house test panels for patients. Our highly equipped labs are capable of providing 1000+ testing services such as liquid biopsy, toxicology, blood and urine samples for pathology, women’s health related tests utilizing single swab, coagulation, clinical chemistry, gastritis, allergy, asthma and more.
I can proudly say that Sunrise also played an active role during the massive coronavirus wave by introducing the much-needed advanced testing techniques. The list comprises travel services testing, saliva testing, nasal swab testing, testing for delta variant, remove antigen testing, RT-PCR, etc. We used cutting-edge technology like Specimen Collection System – UTMTM and ViroKeyTM SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Test. The latest helps detect SARS-CoV-2 RNA existing in samples of human serum and respiratory specimens.
5. Mohammed Naeem’s name is associated with social work too, apart from healthcare. How do you manage both with such efficiency?
For me, healthcare itself signifies working for the society. I strongly believe that when the people around you are hale and hearty, you will be the same and the world will be a much better place to live in. Whether an entrepreneur or philanthropist, ensuring improvement and growth of every individual becomes my priority, and that brings the efficiency in managing both.
When it comes to Sunrise Diagnostic Lab, my employees are my extended family whom I keep inspiring and guiding to achieve perfection. On the contrary, the society needs privileged people like us who have the capability to help others. Hence, I strive to give my best efforts for the society. We even have philanthropic ventures for the same.
6. Where do you want to take Sunrise Diagnostic Laboratory in the coming years?
Being a laboratory, Sunrise Diagnostic Lab will equip itself with the latest and upcoming technology so that it can offer more precise diagnosis and testing services. Some of the areas of development we plan to improve include physician and patient portal, procedural transparency, equipment information, payment information, turnaround time, etc. Over the next few years, I dream of making SDL a one-stop destination for all kinds of diagnostics requirements not only in NJ. At the same time, I would endeavour to reach out to more underprivileged people who needs quality medical treatment and motivation to live purposefully.
