Phlebotomy services will be provided to all registered outpatients for tests requested by an authorized health care provider. OHSU Registration services can be reached by calling 503 494-8505.
OHSU providers must ensure all orderable and miscellaneous tests are ordered in Epic Order Entry system as Lab Collect. Lab test names and synonyms along with complete test information can be found in the Test Directory. Timed test and glucose tolerance test patients must arrive with adequate time to check-in and complete collection(s) before clinic closure. Duplicate orders will be cancelled. Research orders are required to be placed into Epic Order Entry, with the exception of blinded studies, which will be processed from a manual requisition.
