Dynacare has recently implemented a new Laboratory Information System (LIS) that will increase the consistency of results flowing into eChart Manitoba.
As of November 8, 2017, Dynacare resumed sending Hematology results to eChart. There will be no gap in data as Dynacare has resent all Hematology results from April 3, 2017 to present day. All new results will be sent in real time.
As part of the LIS validation, there are new panels reported from Dynacare; the CBC and the Differential. Depending on how they are ordered, the RBC, Platelet and WBC cell morphology may appear under the CBC, while theactual cell counts may appear separately under the differential. Other tests like the ESR, Reticulocyte, INR, APTT, Heterophile antibody (Monospot), Malaria and the Hematopathologist review will appear on their own.
Validation of Chemistry results is now underway and we will provide updates as this work progresses.
