Audit provider ordering to create a database of test appropriateness

Examine your ordering data to identify misutilization trends

Laboratory-specific analytics provide clinical stakeholders a targeted view of the data they need to increase appropriate ordering. By comparing your providers’ ordering data against laboratory appropriate use criteria authored by Mayo Clinic, our analytics provide rich clinical insights, reveal systemwide ordering patterns, and clearly identify misutilization trends.
