A new version of our lab request


Omnimed decided in 2020 to prioritize the integration of standardized requisitions that meet regional needs to follow the orientations of the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS) and the Collège des médecins du Québec. Today, we are launching a new version of our lab analysis request.

All clinics with the CIUSSS de l’Estrie - CHUS (other than specialist clinics) must use the SAFIR general laboratory analysis requisition at the request of the MSSS. Learn more.

Why a new version?

To adapt to your needs. Many of you have shared your comments with us. So we took all these suggestions, put them together, and implemented them in this new version.

Moreover, as Omnimed is growing, we need to adapt to the needs of new regions and clinics.

Finally, some adjustments result from meetings organized with different laboratories organized to obtain the approval of this request.

What are the main changes?

  • Removal of the Frequent tests section: Originally, this was used to highlight the types of tests most often requested. Then, our customers asked us to add more and more over time. This section became very heavy and users told us it was no longer easy to navigate.
  • Opened subsections to find tests more easily: Several users have told us that they weren’t able to find the terms they wanted. We have therefore chosen to display, by default, all types of analysis. You can use the search tool on the web page (by pressing the CTRL + F buttons on your keyboard) to find a test more easily.
  • Addition of several current test panels/workups: This section has been enhanced at the request of customers.
  • Addition of new tests: We have added all the suggestions that have been made to us. Some technical changes have also been made so that we can update it more easily over time.
  • Addition in the Clinical information section: You can now indicate if the test is routine or urgent. Also, you can choose the option to print the patient's weight and height on the request.
  • Removal of automated patient instructions: Each collection center has specific instructions. We have therefore removed the automated instruction printouts to avoid confusion. You must now manually choose the instructions to print for the patient.
