Text Description is below the image.

Screen shot of the Lab test order system. To the left of the screen shot is the following text:

  • Labs can be ordered for one time or set up for a routine basis. i.e. Every 30 days.
  • Reports available to ease the difficulty of managing routine lab orders
    • Use of Medication


Probably the biggest challenge still exist, phlebotomist come to the facilities specific days of the week, the system does accommodate orders for once a month on the second Tuesday, the order has to be entered for every 30 days, therefore it requires have someone in each facility to run reports and pay close attention to the orders and when the phlebotomist will be in the facility.

Before req was maybe taped to the desk

We have worked on this process a couple of times and we think at this point we finally have worked out the best process.
