Opt-In to Share Your Patients' Lab Results
GaHIN has launched a new program that allows providers to share a copy of their patients' Quest lab results via a secure, searchable GaHIN repository. Sharing patients' lab results offers substantial benefits including:
- Gives other providers the information they need to deliver better care
- Helps eliminate duplicate tests and lowers healthcare costs
- Relieves staff of responding to requests from other providers for individual lab results
- Increases patients' satisfaction when they don't have to pick up and hand deliver results
Quest Diagnostics, one of the largest lab services in Georgia, is the first to participate in the program. GaHIN is currently working with LabCorp to make their results available, and will then explore connections with independent laboratories.
