Sick and Scared, and Waiting, Waiting, Waiting - New York Times: "Yet while little can be done about the fact that test results can be scary, health care researchers and doctors say a lot can be done to improve the delivery of results so patients are not left waiting for days or even weeks. And a lot can be done to improve waits for appointments and in doctors' offices and emergency rooms."
If patients could access their lab reports and scan results online ( through their PHR), this would make their waits much less !
