Document Diagnostic Tests or Lab Requisitions

Version 14.8


In this section, you will view the steps needed to document screening tests or labs without creating an order for another staff member to record the results.

  • Diagnostic Test Requisitions can be created, printed and managed from the Diag Tests tab in the note or from the patient's chart.
  • In-House requisition: any lab work and screenings done completely in the office.
  • Send-Out requisition: any labs/screening tests that are partially or completely processed in another facility.

Diagnostic tests ordered and recorded from the Diag Tests tab and NOT from the Assess/Plan tab will appear in the summary of the note if you are on version 14.8.16. If on an older version the order will NOT appear as orders in the summary of the note.
