Effects of the Transition
  • The current cytology cards will no longer be used. It will be replaced with order questions to be answered at order entry.
  • The Pap conventional one slide will no longer be available since we are using a liquid based platform only.
  • The Pap Thin Prep Reflex HPV test will use standardized reflexing according to ACOG guidelines.
    • HPV will automatically be reflexed based on the following age based guidelines:
Age <21 No reflex
Age 21-29 Reflex with:
Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance (ASC-US)
Atypical Glandular Cells of Endocervical origin (AEG)
Atypical Glandular Cells of Endocervical OR Endometrial origin (AGEE)
Age 30-65 Reflex with:
Negative for intraepithelial lesion or malignancy (NILM)
Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance (ASC-US)
Atypical Glandular Cells of Endocervical origin (AEG)
Atypical Glandular Cells of Endocervical OR Endometrial origin (AGEE)

    • HPV testing can be added on up to 30 days from the date of collection by placing the order in Epic.
      • You will then need to notify the appropriate DMG Lab to inform them that HPV testing has been added on to a patient. Lab staff will use the workflow process put in place for HPV add-on orders.
  • A minor delay in Gynecology results may occur during the first week of transition period.
  • Epic preference lists, smart sets, and order sets will be updated to reflect this change.
