Laboratory Diagnostics Committee Updates
The URMC Laboratory Diagnostics Committee (LDC) has obtained input from well-respected, subspecialty-trained clinicians practicing in the Rochester area. With their expert advice, the LDC was able to assess the clinical utility of the increasing number of laboratory tests being offered by the industry. These expert recommendations allowed the LDC to develop an efficient and robust menu of laboratory tests offered through URMC Labs. Please review these LDC memos and forms: LDC Test Formulary Memo
*** The One-time Authorization form for Restricted or Off-formulary tests is now an online form, see right hand column. >>>
We have developed a comprehensive listing of approved tests offered by URMC Labs. Tests listed as "restricted" may only be ordered by board-certified, subspecialty-trained physicians holding Medical Staff Privileges at Strong Memorial or Highland Hospital. For the most updated list of restricted tests, please refer to the Laboratory Test Directory.
