SUMMARY:

For test labs that receive a request to perform tests (jobs) on a sample from a requester (clinic, hospital, etc), our Lab Service Management (LSM) add-on is the best option.

However, to make the process easier we offer our utility LSMRemote which helps both you and the requester. LSMRemote application can be integrated into the website of the requester (clinic, hospital, etc).

This makes it easier for the requester to send and view the job requests.

Follow the steps below to use LSMRemote for submitting a job:-

1. Integrate the LSMRemote into requesters website

2. LSMRemote registration/login & other options

3. Configure fields in Job and sample data in LSMRemote

4. Submit a job using LSMRemote

5. Receiving the job from LSMRemote in LSM add-on

1. Integrate the LSMRemote into requesters website

2. LSMRemote registration/login & other options

3. Configure fields in Job and sample data in LSMRemote

  • As described previously with LSMRemote you can submit a job (test for your samples) to the test lab.
  • Once you login to LSMRemote, you will see various options including “submit order”.
  • Below is the image of the first time logged in LSMRemote, hence you can see below as “no data available in table”.
    *You can replace the logo of LabCollector with your own image. See our KB on how to integrate LSMRemote into your website.
  • When you click on submit an order you will see the below image.

  • The above image shows you how LSMRemote will look like without any pre-configuration or added fields.
  • 1. Job data is where you will update fields related to your job. 
        – However, in the above image, you see only 2 fields, but you can ask the test lab who have Lab Service Management (LSM) add-on to add new fields as per your requirements.
        – The test lab with LSM add-on can create new fields like JOB date or case record (meaning the patient details).
        – LSM has an option to activate the case record which will automatically activate it in LSMRemote.
        – To activate the case record option in the LSM add-on you need to go to LSM ADD-ON -> ADMIN -> SETUP -> CASE RECORD.
          *Read our KB on how to manage case records.
         

      – To add another field for example, like job date the test lab with LSM needs to go to LSM ADD-ON -> ADMIN -> PREFERENCES -> PARAMETERS.
      – Important point is to set the parameter at the “job” level and to tick mark it on the “Client form“. You can choose if you want this option to be mandatory in form filling (mandatory fields will show a red asterisk in front of them).
        Like the below image you can add any parameter that you prefer.
     
        

  • 2. Here you can add your job number such as JOB_01.
  • 3. In this field, you will not see anything until the test lab with LSM has configured your name and details.
       – The test lab needs to create requesters by going to LSM ADD-ON -> ADMIN -> CONTACTS -> REQUESTERS. 
       – Like below for example:-
     

  • 4. Here you can put the priority level for your job. For example, some jobs can be rushed, some can have normal priority and some can have slow priorities.
  • 5. if you do prefer to make payments using a purchase order, you can add the purchase order number here.
  • 6. Here you can add all information about the sample data.
        – The first image shows you not preconfigured sample data, however, you can add any new fields that you require for the sample data option (Check below point 6).
  • 7. These options help you to add rows for the samples, replicate samples, select/un-select all, clear all, import, or export CSV.
  • 8. Here you can insert the fields for sample data, like sample number/name, type, comments, or tests.
        – To add another field for example, like job date the test lab with LSM needs to go to LSM ADD-ON -> ADMIN -> PREFERENCES -> PARAMETERS.
          ***Please check our KB on how to create parameters.
        – Important point is to set the parameter at the “sample” level and to tick mark it on the “Client form“. You can choose if you want this option to be mandatory in form filling (mandatory fields will show a red asterisk in front of them).
        – Like the below image you can add any parameter that you prefer.

     – For you to enter the sample type or tests they need to be preconfigured in the LSM add-on.
     – TYPE: To add sample type you need to go to LSM ADD-ON -> ADMIN -> PREFERENCES -> SAMPLE TYPES.
      **Please check our KB on how to create sample types.

     – TESTS:  To add tests you need to go to LSM ADD-ON -> ADMIN -> PREFERENCES -> TESTS
     *You need to define sample type while configuring the test in LSM, as each sample type will have a specific test assigned to it.
      **Please check our KB on how to create a test in LSM.
     

  • 9. Once you are done configuring all the fields, you can now proceed to save the order.

4. Submit a job using LSMRemote

  • Once you have configured all the options in the above section, you can now fill in all the details, for example, like below:-

  • The below page will pop-up with the Chain of Custody (CoC) report.
    – This CoC template can be made by going to LSM ADD-ON -> ADMIN -> PREFERENCES -> REPORT & INVOICE TEMPLATES.
     *Please check our KB on how to create a report in LSM.

    – Once you have created the report template go to 
    LSM ADD-ON -> ADMIN -> PREFERENCES -> REPORT & INVOICE TEMPLATES -> OPTIONS.
     

  • The image shows the CoC file example template which you can download for further use.

5. Receiving the job from LSMRemote in LSM add-on

  • Once the job is submitted in the LSMRemote it will be visible in LSM add-on.
  • To view this job go to LSM ADD-ON -> JOB -> JOB LISTS, where your job will be seen like below:-
