UC San Diego Health System: Autoverification Using Middleware Rules Opens New Possibilities

The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Health System operates 2 hospitals with 565 beds and a level 1 trauma center and employs more than 850 physicians in the San Diego area. The clinical labs produce more than 4.5 million reportable chemistry tests per year. The laboratory structure today includes 2 rapid-response labs and the Center for Advanced Laboratory Medicine (CALM). The specialized CALM handles all non-stat testing and has proven to be highly effective at improving workflow and maximizing efficiency.
