The Ontario Laboratories Information System (OLIS) is a repository connecting hospitals, community laboratories, public health laboratories, and practitioners to facilitate the secure electronic exchange of laboratory test orders and results.
With TELUS Collaborative Health Record (CHR), you can communicate with the OLIS system to retrieve laboratory results. You can:
Manually retrieve lab reports for a single patient. See Downloading lab reports from OLIS for a single patient.
Preview and selectively process lab results. See Previewing and saving OLIS lab results.
📌 Note: When retrieving lab reports for a patient, they are displayed in a preview window and are not automatically imported into the CHR. You have to manually choose which lab results you would like to save to the patient chart. Only once a report is saved to the patient chart, will it appear in the provider's inbox.
Handle blocked content and overrides. See Managing private and blocked OLIS lab reports.
⚠️ Important: Even if you have OLIS configured on your system, maintain your direct feeds from the commercial laboratories because the OLIS system does not yet include all commercial laboratories and hospital systems.
For information on setting up your clinic to receive OLIS results, see Getting connected to OLIS.
