Memo: Hereditary Hemochromatosis Testing

The Hematology Laboratory Utilization Committee (HLUC) was formed in 2013 to promote the effective and appropriate utilization of laboratory resources.

In early 2016, the laboratory implemented restricted processing of heritable thrombophilia tests to requests from physicians with expertise in the diagnosis and management of thrombosis. This was done to ensure that these tests were being done for recognized indications, after appropriate counselling, in target patient populations.

We are now undertaking a project to similarly restrict genetic testing for hereditary hemochromatosis to patients who meet the appropriate criteria.
