When in an appointment, Meddbase will automatically create a pathology form based on the tests that have been added as services to the appointment.
The list of tests currently associated to the appointment can be found at the top of the clinical form. Note: If the same services is added twice, it will only be requested once.
If the test you wish to request is not listed here, you must add it as a service. Use the “add service” button located at the top left of the page and search for the test using the service picker. Once you have found the test, add it to your chosen services. The price and payer will be displayed. Be sure this information is correct.
NOTE: If the lab are billing the patient directly, the price must be £0.00.
Once you have added the tests to the chosen services, hit proceed and this will take you back to the consultation.
Once back in the consultation, hit the Pathology Lab Request button located at the top left of the page. This will generate a lab request form based on the tests in the services list.
The Lab request form will also prompt you with a list of additional options. These options may be different depending on your setup and have been setup to allow you to communicate with the Lab. Select the options you wish to set using the parameters section on the left of the page. As you change the parameters, the form will automatically update.
Options such as Fee to Patient, or Fasting)
Once you have completed the form and you are happy with the information on the form, simply hit save and print. Meddbase will pop up a window prompting you to print out the lab form.
NOTE: If the window does not pop up it will be because you have a pop up blocker turned on. If this is the case hit the “print again” button and make sure for future requests you exclude the site *.meddbase.com in your pop up blocker.
If you are a TDL customer, as soon as you hit save and print, a request is automatically sent to the lab.
You must also print out the hard copy and attach it to the sample as the lab will not process anything until they have this.
Meddbase also has a feature to allow you to print to a label printer which can then be attached to the sample. If you have a label printer installed, you will see an option to “print labels” once you have hit save and print.
Once you have completed the request, hit finish and you will be taken back to the consultation.
