In early July 2014, Pap test providers across British Columbia and the Yukon will be able to access Pap test results and reminder letters through Excelleris.

What you need to know

Pap test results and reminder letters will be distributed in the same manner that your other Lower Mainland Laboratory reports are received. If your reports are received via Excelleris hardcopy (through Meditran), fax, or Excelleris LaunchPad, you will now receive your Pap test results and Pap test reminder letters in the same way.

Results sent to physician EMRs will be in a PDF format at this time, although they may come via hardcopy/fax print while Excelleris works with EMR vendors to validate that EMRs can receive/process the new content.

Please note that Pap test results and reminders will not be available for patients on my ehealth at this time.

If you are not receiving your laboratory reports via Excelleris LaunchPad or physician EMR, this is an excellent time to make the transition and receive your reports electronically. To register for this free service please contact Excelleris Customer Support at 1-866-728-4777 or support@excelleris.com.
