New Clinic or Provider Information Changes

All new clinics are required to complete the 'New Clinic Request for Laboratory Services Application Form'.

Any provider changes will impact provider report distribution and will impact patient results

The Saskatoon area laboratory supports one mailing address per care provider, to which all laboratory reports will be delivered. Care providers may elect for delivery of Saskatoon Area Laboratory reports by one of the following mechanisms:

  1. Paper: printed and delivered to the afore-mentioned mailing address by either courier or mail
  2. Paper: directly delivered to a printer located on the SHA Network
  3. Fax: delivered directly to a secure fax at your location
  4. Electronic: transmission via HL7 message; facilitated by eHealth Saskatchewan delivered to an office management system/ EMR
    NOTE: eHealth Saskatchewan can accommodate electronic report distribution to multiple Office Management Systems/EMRs; however they are unable to discreetly separate and deliver reports at the clinic level (all results go to all systems)

    * The Saskatoon Laboratory Information System can accommodate ONE of the "paper print" (options 1, 2 or 3) plus electronic transmission of results (option 4) at the same time, however all results from all locations at which the care provider practices will be delivered by both mechanisms
  • All communication of test results will go back to the requesting provider (based on laboratory computer system doctor files)
    • To also direct a paper copy of the patient report to an alternate clinic location or additional providers, it must be indicated as an additional copy on the requisition
    • Critical test results will be called to the Requesting Physician based on the phone number in the LIS associated with each care provider (provided on the Care Provider Request for Laboratory Report Distribution)
  • Our Work Standard for Laboratory Service For Providers Working in Multiple Clinics can be found here
