Laboratory Reporting Format and Distribution Update

Laboratory Reporting Format Update—- effective June 3, 2017

The Spectrum Health Laboratory Information System is upgrading to a new format for printed/faxed reports on June 3, 2017.

An integral portion of this upgrade is Report Distribution times are changing to: 06:17, 14:17 & 22:17. Previously scheduled print times will be discontinued.

All expedited reports, i.e. STAT testing, Prothrombin Times or any client configured to receive results as soon as they are released are not affected by this reporting schedule.

The new look of the Report Format is outlined below:

  • Font size of Results & Comments are consistent appearance throughout report.
  • The Low, High & Critical flags are a smaller font than the numerical result. See example below.
  • R flags correspond to a Result Comment below the set of results, this would apply to comments when a Critical result call has been documented, i.e., the screenshot below R1: Hgb.
