GLHC โ€“ Result Delivery based on a patient list

Description
Healthcare providers and hospitals have struggled with sending and receiving test results on patients when the provider is not identified at the time the order was initiated. Typically, a test result is delivered to the ordering provider, and may include other if identified in the request. This is particularly difficult for behavioral health providers who are often outside of the traditional care path, and therefore not included in these messages. Lab results are vital to behavioral health providers when prescribing medications such as psychotropic drugs.  Great Lakes Health Connect (GLHC) in Grand Rapids, MI, partnered with Washtenaw County Community Mental Health Agency, the University of Michigan Health System, Medicity, and PCE Systems to provide lab test results based on the patient list for Washtenaw County CMH.
