Connect Medication Orders to Lab Results

​Reviewing laboratory results is an important step in the selection of medications and dosages. With some high-risk medications, such as anticoagulants and insulin, it is a crucial step. Connecting lab results to ordering systems, whether paper or electronic, assists prescribers by making the results available where and when they do their ordering.

 

Tips

  • Make sure the most current results come though immediately from the lab to the ordering system.
  • Program your computerized prescriber order entry system to either display key lab results on the ordering screen or provide them through a quick link.
