With the growing number of patients using technology to access their health records online, many patients wonder why they are not able to view all their lab results in their health records. In order to display lab results electronically in the patient’s health records, the lab company must have an interface with the physicians (EHR) electronic health record software. With thousands of lab companies located throughout the U.S. is it virtually impossible for any one EHR company to have active interfaces with all lab company in the U.S. If you do not see your lab results electronically when logging in to check your health records then you need to request that your physician contacts your lab company to complete an electronic lab interface.
