During October, as Seattle Children’s transitions to Epic, we anticipate the possibility that PCPs’ faxed radiology or lab orders may not be received in a timely manner. As a precaution, if you are sending in your patient for imaging or labs, please fax in the order as usual but also give a paper order to the family to bring with them. This will help us be able to see your patient if they arrive without an appointment and we haven’t received the faxed order by the time they arrive.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we switch to Epic.
