The Pathology Department, under the leadership of Dr. Byron Crawford, is looking at providing "critical value" laboratory results to clinicians after hours. There has been a problem identifying clinic clinicians after hours to receive critical values. In the initial study (one month worth of data), the number of critical values not given or received by clinicians has been minimal but unacceptable. The Study is ongoing.
