What are Algorithms?
An algorithm is a step-by-step procedure to guide clinicians and laboratorians in appropriate laboratory test ordering. A diagnosis algorithm may specify particular laboratory tests to order given certain circumstances and a decision sequence based on certain results of these tests. Algorithms are available as printable PDF documents.
How do I use Algorithms?
Insights gained from algorithms should be shared with clinicians as a way to improve patient care, increase efficiency, and reduce costs.
How Can I Share Algorithms with Colleagues?
