Health Current Now Receiving LabCorp Test Results for COVID-19
As Arizona’s Health Information Exchange (HIE), Health Current is committed to supporting the healthcare community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are pleased to announce a new collaboration with LabCorp to direct their COVID-19 test results to the HIE.
This new collaboration brings a vastly expanded number of LabCorp test results into Health Current, including COVID-19 alerts for positive and negative tests. Historically, Health Current has received all COVID-19 lab results from Sonora Quest Labs, Banner Health and a variety of other hospitals, health systems and independent laboratories. Together, these groups account for 75-80 percent of all COVID-19 lab results in Arizona. We anticipate that new data from LabCorp will help create a more complete picture of COVID-19 testing throughout the state and help keep Arizona’s healthcare workforce safe.
How to Get Started
The new service is opt-in only. There are no costs to establish the data feed, however providers must complete a LabCorp Provider Authorization Form to allow LabCorp test results to flow to the HIE on their behalf. This form is available to download at www.healthcurrent.org/COVID19. If your organization orders some or all of your lab tests through LabCorp, please download, complete and return this form to your Health Current account manager or VendorSupport@healthcurrent.org at your earliest convenience.
If you have any questions about submitting LabCorp data to the HIE, or the required provider authorization form, please contact your Health Current account manager or email VendorSupport@healthcurrent.org.
