This article will provide guidance on three (3) topics: How to check a patient's result, how to file in result, and how to link a patient's result to a pending request.
Once a result has been reviewed, you have the option to file it into the patient record.
You are able to file the result into three different sections in the patient's clinical record: Correspondence, Investigations and Referral. This is available via the File In drop down menu.
NOTE: If you have an Allied Health subscription and you are receiving results, you will need to file all results to Correspondence as you will not have access to Investigations in the patient clinical record.
Once you click on these options, the result will be transferred to the relevant section of the patient's clinical record and removed from the Inbox.
Checking a Patient Result
Clicking Checked will pull up a number of options to label the result.
- Being treated
This will give you the option to check the result in a few clicks.
Linking a Result to Request
By clicking on "Link to Request", you can link a result message to an already existing request that is waiting for results in the patient's clinical record. After clicking, a list of all the pending requests for the patient will appear in an expanded message.
Click the Tick-box next to the name of the open request, and click Partially Received or Fully Received.
If you access the patient record, you'll find that the result will be placed in the tab that you have chosen.\
