Important Content Update Message
We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 20. OP 20 (official version 20.0.x) is the certified, 2015 Edition, version of the Office Practicum software. This is displayed in your software (Help tab > About) and in the Help Center tab labeled Version 20.0. We appreciate your patience as we continue to update all of our content.

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

 WARNING: This 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.
