Monday, January 25, 2010 at 1:48:15 PM

The Medical Records Committee is creating a Lean/Six Sigma Team to plan the elimination of printed laboratory reports. This was done successfully on pilot units with doctors given the option to review reports on-line or to request the unit staff to print them. Most doctors were comfortable reviewing reports on-line.
