LDS reduces unnecessary test ordering
A study conducted by Medical Database (Leblow L, et al. J Clin Lab Med. Sept. 5, 2019. doi:10.16966/2572-9578.128) showed that its laboratory decision system, LDS, reduced unnecessary test ordering. Users of the system are able to select the appropriate test using test procedure, CPT code, disease, or a diagnostic (ICD-10) code. Orders placed using the LDS platform automatically include the appropriate ICD-10 code to meet medical necessity for reimbursement.
