Step 2: Check your pathology provider test results are recognised
This section covers the following steps:
|Step 2.1 Check your pathology test results|
|Step 2.2 Contact your PHN to add test results (if required)|
|Step 2.3 Check your Sonic Healthcare FOBT test results|
Use the lists of test results in the links below to check that the bowel, breast and cervical screening test results used by your pathology and radiology providers are recognised by the software that you use to create patient reminder lists (i.e. data audit tools or your practice software).
|Software provider||Recognised bowel screening test results||Recognised breast screening test results||Recognised cervical screening test results|
|Medical Director||N/A||N/A||Cervical screening result searches|
If the test results used by your pathology provider are not listed, contact your primary health network (PHN).
Your PHN will liaise with data audit tool providers, as required, to ensure all test results are recognised.
In some instances, Sonic Healthcare sends faecal occult blood test (FOBT) test results (for bowel screening) via a hyperlink that is valid for 12 months.
This format will not be recognised by data audit tools or your practice software.
If you are getting FOBT results via hyperlink, contact Sonic Healthcare on 1800 957 177 to ask for your results to come in HL7 PDF format.
