LAB RESULTS, HOW TO ENSURE YOU WILL GET YOURS...

Ever been to your doctor and asked for your lab results and they aren't in your chart? This is because while most office run on some type of EMR (Electronic Medical Record), those EMR's don't connect with one another.  So if you had labs done at your PCP (Primary Care Physicians) office and didn't ask them to forward them to your Cardiologist, Endocrinologist, Hematologist, etc. The only person seeing the blood work will be your PCP.

If you have blood work done at a lab such as Quest Diagnostic or a Beaumont Lab these labs will get mailed or faxed to  ONLY the ordering physician.  If any of your physicians have access to EPIC, (The EMR that Beaumont uses) then they will be able to access your records.  Unfortunately Quest labs don't have don't have a system physician's can access from their offices, so the only way a specific physician will get your results is if you tell Quest where to send them.

In review, Labs taken at:
Physicians office:  Ask them to send labs to every physician office you think may need or want them

Quest Diagnostic:  Ask them to send labs to every physician office you think may need or want them

Beaumont Lab:   Ask them to send labs to every physician office you think may need or want them (Just to be certain)

MEET OUR MHG PHYSICIAN EXTENDERS, AN EXTENSION OF YOUR HEART CARE TEAM! THIS MONTH WE RECOGNIZE SARAH LEVIN

Beaumont Michigan Heart Group would like to introduce you to our physician extenders.  They are a critical part of the Cardiology team at Michigan Heart Group.  The Physician Extenders work hand and hand with the physicians, making decisions on the best treatment options for each patient on a case by case basis.  All of our extenders round on the weekends as well as work in the hospital during the week.  Most of our extenders also have office hours and we encourage our patients to feel comfortable following up with them in the office.  Our medical decisions are often a team approach that each extender is a part of and they are often at the forefront of each decision that is made.

The practice is made up of Interventionist (plumbers) and Electrophysiologist (electricians).  The plumbers are located at 4600 Investment Drive, #200, while the Electricians are in the building next door at 4550 Investment Dr., #250.  In addition Michigan Heart Group has two satellite offices to accommodate our out of town patients.  One in Macomb at 15959 Hall Road, #304, Macomb and another in Novi at Ten Mile and Haggerty, 39500 Ten Mile, #103, Novi. Each extender is trained and familiar with both specialties.


Each month we will be focusing on one extenders achievements, this month we recognize Sarah Levin.

Sarah Levin, R.N., N.P., M.S.N.:  She started in May 2014, directly after graduating from the University of Michigan with her Masters. Sarah graduated at the top of her and Michigan Heart Group is lucky to have her on our team!  She went to Michigan State University in East Lansing for her undergrad again graduating at the top of her class.  If you see Sarah in the office make sure to ask her if she's a Spartan or a Wolverine!

She is licensed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a Nurse Practitioner and an Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner.  You will most likely see Sarah in the hospital, she helps the physicians round during the week and on weekends.  However she is in the office twice a week so if you become familiar with her don't be afraid to ask to follow up with her.  Several of our patients only see the doctor once a year or every other year depending on their health.  They will instead choose to see extenders like Sarah since they are easier to get into and can solve all the same problems since they work hand in hand with your physician.  Sarah recently got married so you may know her as Sarah Richards, make sure to congratulate her on her nuptials next time you see her.


OUR EXTENDER TEAM AND WHERE YOU MAY SEE THEM:


Cheryl Vincent, APRN:  Sees patients at Michigan Heart Rhythm Group all day Thursday and Friday.  Also, sees patients at William Beaumont Hospital- Troy, covers Beaumont RO when needed.

Anita Juriga, MSN, A.P.R.N:  Sees patients at Michigan Heart Group all day Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  Also, sees patients at William Beaumont Hospital- Troy, covers Beaumont RO when needed.
