American Society for Clinical Pathology releases new laboratory test recommendations

The American Society for Clinical Pathology updated its recommendations on ordering and administering certain lab tests.

The new recommendations were released in two lists, and are intended to increase conversations between patients and physicians concerning what care is necessary, according to a Nov. 7 news release.

The updated guidelines are also designed to lower waste by decreasing the frequency of unnecessarily administered tests and treatments. 

The lists are part of ABIM Foundation's "Choosing Wisely" campaign, and were made in collaboration with the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science and the American Society for Microbiology.
