Hello!
Has anyone ever printed a second label when a test reflexes?
We have our main site along with three satellite facilities. All of the satellite facilities run TSH, but they do not run FT4 so when a FT4 is reflexed it is sent to our main site. The satellite facilities want a second label to print when the FT4 reflexes.
I have not been able to come up with a way to successful accomplish this. I tried writing a reflex rule to attach in the order group dictionary, but I could not figure out a way to write the rule.
My other idea was to build a second result group with a separate order group and use "NEW" in spec type instead of "SAME," but that would put the FT4 on a completely new barcode which we do not want to happen.
Thanks for your help!

Hi Kassandra,
Have you tried setting this up in your Client/Location dictionary on page 2?
Thank you,

I forgot to mention we are Meditech 5.67 site.
I have not tried setting this up in the client/location dictionary. How would I go about doing that? I checked out page 2, but do not see how I could get FT4 to print a second label when reflexed at our satellite facilities.
Thank you!

Yes, I believe that's what MT suggested to me as well. You would set the terminal that is used to result the test, which would cause the reflex to invoke, in the Client/Location dictionary. KB 55156 talks briefly about it, but the KB I recall seeing this setup in before is 52584. On the latter, look at the bottom, step #5.

Here is the set up for the computer in our lab that is mainly used for the UAs. They wanted a lab to print when a urine culture was reflexed and this is how we set it up. It will automatically print a label for any test that is ordered from the computer. Usually that is only urine cultures on this PC.

We are 5.67. I have mine set up as a reflex order group and add to the "same" Spec Type.... so we do not get another barcode, but the Vista "sees" the new order and automatically runs it from the aliquot the instrument made so we do not get or want another barcode. If you want a new barcode (it will be on a different accession #), you enter "NEW" at Spec Type.

I also have different doctors that want the reflex to happen at different results, so I have the reflex defined by result and by ordering doctor.
