Step 2.2 Contact your PHN to add test results (if required)

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.

Step 2.3 Check your Sonic Healthcare FOBT test results

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.
