Update Service Fields

Update Display in Service Field Settings

  • In Update display this is where you can update the name, category and index of the lab service field.
  • For example updating display of lab service field Color

Update Units in Service Field Settings (if applicable)

  • In Update units this is where you can update units of the lab service field.
  • For example updating unit of White blood cell, Color has no units so a different sample is shown

Update Reference Ranges in Service Field Settings (if applicable)

  • In Update reference range, this is where you can update reference range of the lab service field
  • For example updating reference range of Specific gravity

Adding Data Collected in Service Field Settings

  • In adding data collected, this determines what kind of data you want to collect, it can be a number, range of numbers or a word.
  • For example, the blood cell count would need to have a field type of “Number,” whereas urine color would need a field type of “Interpretation.”
  • In this example we will use color, so we need to collect word or sentences
  • We want to add pre-selected values where lab users can choose a result by just clicking on the dropdown. Just check pre-selected values
  • Add a list of possible qualitative values for this field and save
  • Once you added all possible qualitative value, click update
Once you completed arranging, adding data collected, adding units and reference ranges, it would look like this.

Add Lab Documents

  • In adding lab documents, search for the document with your laboratory name and respective lab service.
  • If you don't see your lab documents, we offer customization of documents, this can be requested to your assigned RM and they will forward this to the team and make it for you.

Add Lab Service Variants

  • Adding Lab Service Variants makes you group specific lab service fields with another.
  • Grouping Lab service variants makes it easier to set up laboratory products and removes unnecessary lab service fields which the patient did not pay for.
