Online ordering allows orderer and patient contextual information, along with laboratory test codes to be passed electronically to our laboratory systems therefore ensuring better quality information.
By receiving your request electronically - this will ensure accurate information is collected at source and will remove the need for manual data entry of the current request forms.
You will not have to log on to our ordering system - this will be handled automatically once you are set up in our systems. How it will be done will depend on your Practice Management System.
By collecting electronic data at source we are eliminating data entry errors that can occur when our staff read and enter request form data into laboratory systems. Patient details are sent automatically by the system ensuring we have the correct information.
No need to print out separate collection information for your patients. Collection information that is printed on the forms will be current laboratory practice so this reduces the chances of errors in collection and will reduce recollecting of specimens from patients.
The ordering database is populated with approximately the last 24 months result data directly from the order form. You can review recent results at the click of a button .
Most importantly this new process has been kept as similar to existing ordering processes as possible.
