Is there a different electronic results process for specimens collected in house versus specimens collected at the lab facility?

WarningThis information is intended only for clients currently in the implementation or production phase with OP eLabs functionality.

The same electronic workflow is followed regardless of whether the specimen was collected in house and sent to the lab or the specimen was collected at the lab directly. All lab orders will be processed from within OP's eLabs interface.  

  • The specimen collection source will continue to be chosen in the OP Diagnostic Test Requisition window.
  • The Order Type from OP displays as Standard in the eLabs Order Form if the specimen is collected in-house.
  • The Order Type from OP displays as PSC (Patient Servicing Center) in the eLabs Order Form if the specimen is collected at the lab.
