Lab Docuplates

This lesson will cover how to search create Lab docuplates.

Lab docuplates are used for documenting groups of lab tests.  For example a CBC is composed of many lab tests: WBC, RBC, Hbg, Hct,  etc.   A lab docuplate for a CBC would contain all of the individual tests that make up that CBC.

So far, very difficult to edit lab docuplates. I change the ranges BOTH under the individual lab tests and on the docuplate, change the name of the docuplate, upload it when I'm done. And yet when I go to open it in the chart, I still get the old lab values. For example, my lab's glucose range is 60-105, but no matter how I try to change the glucose test and the BMP docuplate, when I try to enter a BMP in a patient's chart, it still is popping up the range of 60-110.

When I was doing my training session and the trainer tried to walk me through it, she had to do it 3 different times to get it to "stick". Not a good sign. I guess I missed whatever subtle difference she did the 3rd time.
