Survey Reveals Opportunities for Collaboration to Optimize Test Utilization

Mar 12, 2018

Although ASCP is the only general pathology organization participating in the Choosing Wisely campaign for effective test utilization, many other specialty societies have put forth recommendations that are pertinent to the practice of laboratory medicine.

As part of its ongoing efforts to support patient-centered care and evidence-based medicine, ASCP recently conducted a survey to prioritize Choosing Wisely recommendations developed by non-ASCP participating organizations to determine the most relevant ones for effective use of laboratory services, allowing ASCP to identify opportunities for collaboration with other societies to optimize laboratory utilization.
