L Hilborne, H Lee, P Cathcart
American Journal of Clinical Pathology 1996, 105 (6): 671-5

Successful development of a stat testing list requires organizations to take an interdisciplinary approach, focusing on clinical and operational considerations of both the care provider and the clinical laboratory.
