If you’re integrated with a lab, you can customize pricing so it matches the quotes you receive. Each clinic operates a little differently; the Atlas.md EMR accounts for that.
Each clinic is given individual lab prices by Quest, Labcorp or ELLKAY. The first time you order tests, you’ll be prompted to enter those quoted prices. Atlas will remember the price you entered so it’ll be ready to go the next time you order that lab. If you prefer to add a batch of your default prices all at once, you can do so easily through the Account > Lab Prices page.
To update that pricing, first select “Labs Prices” from your Account drop down. The resulting list includes all available labs you can order, including their prices in the column to the right. Further to the right, you’ll notice a pencil icon when you hover over a particular lab. Click that pencil icon to enter a custom price, and then click “Save.”
One last thing – if you’re fortunate enough to be provided a spreadsheet (.xls or .csv) of your labs pricing, use the handy labs prices importer tool to upload everything all at once.
Used to something different? That’s because it is. Previously, the Atlas.md EMR imported default labs prices based on information the lab provided as being their typical prices, with a small markup to make sure you never lost money. However, we noticed such a discrepancy between those default prices and the individual pricing provided to each clinic, that in allowing you to adjust individually we were actually creating more work for you! Obviously that’s not ideal, so we changed our game plan to accommodate yours.
