If you’re using Quest for your lab reports, results are automatically uploaded to the patient’s chart and you’re notified via email when they arrive. However, if you’re not using Quest, you may manually upload files from the lab company of your choice.
When the lab provider sends you the results, you have the ability to not only upload the PDF to the patient’s chart, but mark the document as a lab result. From anywhere inside the patient’s chart, click the plus sign in the upper right hand corner. Select the labs beaker icon. Then click “Custom labs” to attach your file. This way, it’s easily found right where you’d expect it to be: in the Labs sidebar filter.
