This project aimed to build on a prior family medicine clerkship project which designed a pamphlet containing high-yield facts to help patients interpret common lab results. An Epic SmartPhrase was created from this information and made available for all users at Colchester Family Medicine. Fewer messages from patients inquiring about lab values would be expected to be routed to providers if this intervention were successful upon further evaluation. Future projects could create SmartPhrases which cover other frequently ordered tests, such as complete blood counts with differential, thryoid cascade, iron studies and urinalysis.
