Outpatient results are available through Epic upon completion of the test. Additionally, the laboratory and Information Services have established interfaces with several external electronic medical record systems so that results can post directly in physician practice’s patient management system. Paper charts are also generated at various times and location to printers and fax machines within the laboratory, WellSpan Medical Group practices, nursing homes and other physician offices.
Outpatient Clinical Lab and Anatomic Pathology reports are generated by the laboratory Monday through Friday. These reports are placed in the mail Monday through Friday and should reach their destination within one or two days. Supplemental delivery of reports by courier or fax may be provided in some cases. For WellSpan Medical Group practices, reports are generated to their office printers.
