Because not all lab vendors will name lab tests exactly the same, it is important to use lab mapping to group similar result names. This way, the TELUS Collaborative Health Record (CHR) recognizes that they are the same lab test and displays them together in flowsheets, trending graphs and so on.
📌 Note: You can map lab tests only from integrated electronic lab vendors such as Dynacare or Meditech. You cannot map lab tests from uploaded documents or faxes.
⚠️ Important: Only account owners can configure this feature. If you are not the account owner, contact TELUS CHR support team through the support chat. See Contact us. The account decision maker must authorize any changes.
From the main menu, click Settings > Labs.
Under the Lab Result Names Mapping section, you see all currently mapped lab tests.
Scroll to the end of the list, and click + Add Name Mapping. The New Name Mapping window opens.
Add the Common Name and all Synonyms. For example, some lab vendors refer to Albumin (Urine) as Microalbumin (rand urine).
To remove a lab mapping, click the grey x.
