Anatomical pathology lab technology vendor NovoPath, Princeton, N.J., has introduced a customizable web portal to help its customers provide direct patient access to lab reports.

The new feature enables patients with test results to log on to a Web portal through a lab’s Web site and download the documents generated through NovoPath’s anatomic pathology laboratory information system.

The patient access rule enacted this year by the Department of Health and Human Services requires laboratories to provide patients, or their designated representatives, access to completed test results without requiring their physician’s approval or the resulting laboratory.

For More Information: Read a breakdown of the HHS rule on patient access to lab results.
