File Description: 

Beginning Wednesday, June 16, 2021, the escalation process for critical lab values within the Ambulatory Clinic setting will be enhanced to include providers and tiered escalation plans. Currently, notifications of critical lab values vary by clinic and personnel, resulting in inconsistent responses to alerts. The new lab escalation process is a streamlined pathway and is direct to the provider. The average volume of critical labs per ambulatory clinic is less than 10 per month. Details of the new process are outlined in this document. Uploaded 6.10.21
