Launch of our on-line Guide to Services
October 30, 2012
The goal of an efficient and effective laboratory is to provide consistently accurate results in a timely manner with the most judicious use of resources. The complexity of laboratory services emphasize the need for a systematic approach to provide this high level of service. With the unveiling of the NL PHL website healthcare professionals in Newfoundland and Labrador can access the PHL Guide to Services (GTS) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at their computers or mobile devices with a web browser. The GTS provides essential, up-to-date information on test selection, clinical interpretation of test results, specimen collection instructions, instructions for shipping and handling, and performance information including turn around-time and specimen rejection and retention policy information. Our new website also allows for on-line specimen collection device ordering for approved clients, streamlining our clients access. Being up to date on specimen acceptance criteria and shipping conditions are essential for regional health authority quality managers. If you wish to receive updates on testing service changes, new methods and guidelines the on-line Newsletter will keep you informed – essential for physicians and nurses who utilize PHL services.
