The Results Module stores the results of procedures performed on specimens. Procedural data for specimens change because of variable changes like temperature, dilution, sugar, or white blood cells. Results from these variables can vary based upon variable changes. These characteristic-type values preferably would not be stored at the specimen level. If data is stored at the specimen level it could be overwritten when new specimen data is entered. The Results module keeps a history of this data without overriding previous procedural data. This data is stored within the Results module based upon machine processed data that is imported through an uploaded file.
The Results module has two components, the Procedure Definition submanager and the Results submanager. These procedural and run-specific properties can be run at a certain time, in a certain order, and with specific controls and verifiers. Users must have permission to access this module.
The Results submanager is for managing new and saved result batches. This submanager lists existing Result batches, which can be sorted and filtered.
A Results batch can be created from the Requisitions module or directly in the Results module. Data can be entered manually, through import, or via BSI Connect.
Results data can be linked to vials/specimens, subjects, or requisitions. Results data can be added before or during a requisition and can be matched to BSI IDs. Results data can be used for specimen and subject selection. This data can be also utilized to find and report on specific samples in the Reports module.
Typical workflow for using the Results Module:
Set up a procedure → Execute a procedure (in Requisitions) → Add results data → Use results data (in Reports)
