Interventions to improve follow-up of laboratory test results pending at discharge: a systematic review.
Whitehead NS, Williams L, Meleth S, et al. J Hosp Med. 2018;13:631-636.
Test results pending at the time of hospital discharge can lead to a delay in diagnosis and represent a significant patient safety risk. This systematic review found that certain electronic and educational interventions may improve documentation and awareness of pending test results. The authors suggest that further research is needed to understand how these interventions affect processes and outcomes.
