Clarification on recent Incidental Findings Advisory September 9, 2016

Thank you for your comments. I have reviewed your concerns with our Board Chair and QPS Chair.  Our Board Chair, in her experience as both a primary care physician and as a specialist, is sensitive to the increasing demands on primary care physicians today. While the PCP should be copied on all test results, it is the responsibility of the ordering physician to communicate with the patient and/or other members of the patient's healthcare team (PCP and/or other specialists if appropriate), so that there is appropriate follow up on any clinically significant abnormal findings reported on the test/imaging study that they have ordered. Such communication between the ordering physician and the PCP or other healthcare provider should lead to an acknowledgement of who will actually follow up on the test result to ensure patient safety at all times.
