Better Care with Automated Lab Alerts
The critical lab notification feature of EXTENSION’s award-winning solution aggregates data from the HIS/EHR, combines it with lab and patient information, and delivers contextually-rich lab alerts to the designated recipient. Caregivers are capable of communicating directly with the lab department via EXTENSION’s one-touch auto-dial functionality, fostering a true enterprise communication experience. Upon acceptance of a lab value notification, the alert can be recorded in the hospital’s HIS/CIS/EHR to help meet Joint Commission patient safety requirements for reporting critical lab values. As with all EXTENSION solutions, alerts can be prioritized, escalated, verbalized, and audited.
