Clinical users: How to create a laboratory request form
You may create a laboratory request form within VirtualCare and enter in all the relevant details for your patient. Then, your patient can review the appointment on their end and save or print the form themselves.
Note: In order to complete this process, you must upload an image of your signature to your VirtualCare account so that you will be able to sign the request form. For more information, see Clinical users: How to upload your digital signature.
