The ordering provider will receive an In Basket message instructing them to see the Consult Note in the patient chart.

This order is for routine consults only. All urgent consults, like intra-op, should continue to follow the same process of calling the lab call center to reach the on-call pathologist). View the tip sheet on InSite for more details: Orders - Pathology Consult.docx (
