Alverno Laboratories has updated critical alert values for testing performed at their Central Lab, with details provided on pages 2-4 of their communication. They will transition to an updated version of their SOFT Laboratory Information System on April 29, 2023, along with adopting Atlas as the main middleware for communication with client EMRs, resulting in potential changes in report formatting (detailed on page 5). Effective the same date, Alverno Laboratories will switch to Quest Laboratories for reference testing, leading to changes in specimen types, transport temperatures, and testing methodologies, outlined on pages 6-18. It's advised to consult the Alverno Collection Manual for comprehensive information.
