February 05 , 2018

From the office of AHS Laboratory Services - Edmonton ZoneĀ 

Key Messages:

  • Edmonton Zone (EZ) Laboratory Services has revised the STAT requistion so that the patient/physician demographic area now displays standard Alberta Health Services format. When the current inventory depletes for the STAT Requisition, Form #: CH-0022, the updated requisition will come into stock for use.

Why this is important:

  • Practitioners will have a standard and consistem demographic area on requisitions across the province.
  • There have been significant changes to the format of the requistions. Changes include:
    • Standardized demographic information for the patient and physician
    • Laboratory test lists have been updated on the requisition as recommended by the AHS Laboratory Utilization Committee.

Action Required:

  • Use and deplete your current stock first.
  • Continue to order requisitions as required; the updated requisitions will be sent as the old stock is depleted.
  • A print version of the revised requisitions is available through Data Group. Email or phone 780.577.8295 for requisition ordering assistance.
  • Electronic versions are also available on the Laboratory Services Forms and Requisitions, Edmonton Zone website.
