Research Ordering

Per hospital guidelines, researchers are bound to order labs in Epic and have results reported to the patient’s chart unless extenuating circumstances exist. Before a Pathology account can be established your IRB must be reviewed. Researchers will be asked to provide said number to determine if epic ordering is required. If extenuating circumstances exist preventing Epic ordering the application process will move forward. Studies not required to use Epic include non-human, blinded and retrospective.
