Laboratory Outreach

Patient volumes in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine here at UVMMC are split into 3 components, inpatients, outpatients and outreach. In addition to serving our own inpatient and outpatient communities we also act as an outreach reference lab for the private practice offices in Chittenden County and for all of the other hospitals in Vermont, plus some in upstate NY and NH. This presents us with a unique opportunity to offer the patients, who live locally, an integrated inpatient/outpatient record. Test results ordered by a community provider performed in our lab are available to any clinician with access to our Epic EMR. In addition, the results are returned electronically to the community practice. Not only does this provide much needed clinical history it also prevents duplicate testing and reduces the total cost of health care.
As an outreach reference laboratory we are able to offer an extensive menu of routine and esoteric testing, both here at the medical center, and through our partnership with Mayo Clinical Labs. the additional outreach volume allows us to offer testing we would normally need to send out, reducing turn around times and keeing testing local. As an outreach client you can expect:
  • A dedicated outreach specialist for your practice
  • Clinical and Surgical Pathology Consults and Hot Seat
  • Customized sample pickups
  • Collection supplies and centrifuge to maintain sample integrity
  • Electronic interfacing of orders and results for qualifying clients
