Interpretation

CHL will issue a brief report stating key information about the test request and provide a copy of referral laboratory's full report in a pdf format that is also visible in Eclair/Health Connect South. We will endeavour to ensure a hard copy of the referral laboratory report is sent to the referring clinician if we know that they do not have access to Eclair/Health Connect South.

Please email or call the laboratory to let us know that you do not have access to laboratory results within Health Connect South/Eclair.
