About this Use Case
Doctors, laboratories, and other healthcare professionals have a critical need to easily send and find clinical lab results to help with clinical decision support, trending analyses, population health management, medication management, and other care activities.
The coordination of lab results across organizations can be very challenging and can have a negative impact on healthcare costs, as well as patient care. Lab results must be presented in a timely manner and in a usable, actionable format so recipients can deliver efficient and effective care.
