We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 14.19 or OP 19. OP 19 is a member of the certified OP 14 family of products (official version is 14.19.1), which you may see in your software (such as in Help > About) and in the Help Center tabs labeled 14.19. You may also notice that the version number in content and videos may not match the version of your software, and some procedural content may not match the workflow in your software. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make these enhancements.

eLabs: Unlinking Imported eLabs Results

Version 14.19
 WARNING: This information is intended only for clients currently in the implementation or production phase with OP eLabs functionality.

Most Imported eLabs results will be automatically matched based upon the following:

  • Patient ID
  • Patient Name
  • DOB
  • Lab-issued Specimen ID
  • Lab-issued Requisition ID
The lab-issued Requisition ID is also represented as Order # in eLabs and Placer Order # in OP.

In a circumstance where an eLabs result is mistakenly matched automatically or manually to the incorrect patient or requisition, it can be unlinked from the requisition. To do this:

  1. Click the Chart button.
  2. Search for and select the patient.
  3. Select the Diagnostic Tests tab.  
  4. Locate the order requisition that has the unintentionally linked result. 
  5. Click the Unlink button in the Orders/Results pane.  Upon unlinking the result from the requisition, the requisition will be placed back into a Pending status.

  1. The Confirm dialog box appears. Click Yes.

  1. Select or enter an appropriate reason for the change in the record in the Audit Trail window.

  1. The result will now be placed back into the Unmatched Received Results tab in the Diagnostic Tests tab of the Schedule and Practice Workflow window.  Users will now be able to search for and attach the results to the appropriate requisition within the Unmatched/Received Results panel.
