Manually importing electronic labs
Updated over a week ago

You can manually import electronic lab files to your TELUS Collaborative Health Record (CHR) domain. The CHR accepts HL7, txt, or zip file extensions. Your lab integration should automatically import electronic labs from the lab vendors, but there may be a need to manually upload a lab on demand.
