Ambulatory safety nets to reduce missed and delayed diagnoses of cancer.
An ambulatory safety net (ASN) is an innovative organizational intervention for addressing patient safety related to missed and delayed diagnoses of abnormal test results. ASNs consist of a set of tools, reports and registries, and associated work flows to create a high-reliability system for abnormal test result management. In this paper, two ASNs implemented at an academic medical center are described, one focusing on colon cancer and the other on lung cancer.
