The 'Lab Result via Collection Date' company setting allows a practice to decide how a lab result displays in the application. If the value is set to be on, then lab results displayed in the following locations will use this date. If this date happens to be blank, the Reporting Date will be used.
Locations where this setting will be used:
EMR > Timeline > Lab Result icons
EMR > Timeline > Vitals Icon > Graph View
EMR > Timeline > Vitals Icon > Table View
EMR > SOAP Notes > Data Trends
- Value = Checked: this turns the setting on and the collection date will be used.
- Value = Not Checked: This means the setting is off and the reporting date will be used. This is the default option.
