DSM Lab Extract
The DSM Lab Extract is a set of data we receive from Diagnostic Services of Manitoba. It is requested and processed by DSM Labs Consistency check.accdb and stored in the L_Labs_DSM table. It is requested via Instructions for requesting a batch of data from DSM and imported via Instructions for importing a batch of DSM Data. See DSM data for more info on the data once imported.
Things we still want to implement/fix
- we will want to store Lactate eventually
Arterial Blood Gases and Venous Blood Gases are done locally and not usually uploaded to DSM, so we will continue to collect them manually for now.
There might be some inconsistencies in how the labs are re-linked to patients who arrive as Jon Doe or have aliases in PHIN or Chart for other reason. If we want to include all patients with Aliases, we will need to do something to reconcile with Alias ID collection.
A file is exported to #File Share, and we ask #DSM Contacts to provide a new extract. See Instructions for requesting a batch of data from DSM for details.
Actions by DSM
DSM will take our file and generate an output of all labs for those patients for the admission. They will return it to us via the file share.
