How Does Ordering Lab Tests Requisitions Online Work?
Lab tests and lab requisition are a critical part of patient care and may be ordered by your physician for many different reasons: to check a confirmed illness or medical condition, due to symptoms you’ve reported, or to see how your body has been reacting to recently prescribed medications.
Up until now, the traditional process of getting lab tests and lab test requisitions has been time-consuming and inconvenient. In past years in Canada, it was required that you first make an appointment and meet with a physician in person to discuss why you might require lab a test.
Your physician would then order your lab tests via a paper-based ordering process (which would take extra time and was often prone to errors). Finally, after you had gone to the testing center (often far out of your way), you would have to wait for a period of time to pass before your physician would have the time to go over your results with you.
Fortunately, today, things have changed for the better, and EQ Care is at the cutting edge of laboratory test requisitions online
