Changes in lab reporting values – Creates a Dilemma

   Posted by: dsoul   in EMR

Your first time here? Welcome, I'm glad you've dropped in.... David Soul (aka Bricoleur)

In CanadianEMR Dr. Brookstone reports that a change in the presentation of lab results has eliminated a huge benefit that he had as a clinician in easily identifing trends through graphing the results for presentation to patients to demonstrate progress or lack thereof.

The discussion thread was quite active and included opinions that went beyond the trouble of changing of standard presentation methods to the very usefulness of graphing medical results.

I don’t believe the discussion does more than scratch the surface, and will be writing more about the visual display of medical information in future posts, but this appears to be one of the few discussions of the state of the art in EMR: http://emruser.typepad.com/canadianemr/2004/07/changes_in_lab_.html
