Abstract

The logistical details for organizing effective interpretive rounds in a laboratory medicine subspecialty must be carefully established so that expert opinions are provided in a timely fashion in a patient-specific report, rather than as a collection of fixed comments associated with a particular laboratory result generated by a computer This report describes the test batteries for interpretations, the billing for interpretations, clinical examples of interpretations, and interpretations for which billing is not typically performed in several clinical or laboratory areas in our institution. These include coagulation disorders, hemoglobin and anemia evaluations, autoimmune disorders, serum protein analysis, toxicology, molecular diagnostics, and transfusion medicine. The information in this report should provide sufficient detail to allow development of interpretive services with successful billing for the areas in laboratory medicine described.
