Update to Specimen Source and Specimen Type in Lab Orders

Beginning May 15, the specimen source types for Microbiology and Molecular Microbiology orders will be limited to lab acceptable selections. If your order set or preference list is defaulted with a selection that is no longer available, you will need to update your order default.

This will not prevent ordering the item, it will just prompt to enter a new specimen type from the acceptable list.  The magnifying glass will not be accessible anymore on tests where the specimen types have been limited.

Please refer to tip sheets detailing how to Customize Your Preference List or Customize or Create User Order Sets for further assistance.
