Australian Storyboard – Withdraw Report
Eve Everywoman, a 27-year-old female, needs a narrative for this use case.
Reports may be withdrawn at any time if the laboratory discovers an error in the work that was done for some reason. Withdrawal implies a somewhat active process, hunting down any existing copies of an erroneous report and speaking to anyone who may have made clinical decisions based on the report – though this is not always possible. After an error is corrected (if possible), a corrected report may be issued – this is considered to be an amended report. Discussion point: withdrawn reports are an Australian concept.
In the US, Labs do not ‘withdraw’ lab results. For clinical lab – result is corrected. For pathology – result report is amended. If we want to talk about withdrawn reports, then create a storyboard to illustrate and introduce the concept before discussing.
