Laboratory Test Names (Base and Common)

Many SmartLinks and SmartPhrases facilitate the display of laboratory test results in clinical documentation notes. These often accept parameters that control which test results to return, over what look-back period, how many values to show and how the returned text block is formatted. When specific laboratory tests are sought, these are indicated with standardized "Base Names" that can apply to a variety of user-facing or laboratory service names.

The following tables (note categorical tabs across the bottom) list base names commonly used by Connect Care users and builders. Note the tabs (bottom of table) that group names by clinical categories. Use "Cntrl-F" to search within any set of names. A "My Reports" reporting workbench library report (search for "EAP to LRR", also linked on builder dashboard) lists all test names, including unusual and rare base names. A "Procedure Catalogue", available from the Builder dashboard (or global search), provides detailed information about test collection and availability in Alberta.
