Information on Lab Results, Test Results and Notes
To help you stay as informed as possible, we send lab and test results when they are final, which may be before your provider has reviewed them. After your provider reviews your results, they may add comments or contact you directly. They may also wait for more tests or information before providing their opinion or recommendations for you. You can choose to view your results as soon as they are sent or wait to discuss your results with your provider. Please ask your provider when you should expect to hear from them regarding your lab or test results.
Additionally, you can access notes added to your medical record after March 1, 2018. A movement called OpenNotes has been shown to empower patients, families and caregivers to feel more in control of their healthcare decisions, and improve the quality and safety of care. This is a growing international movement, and it’s backed by the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
