More details on the above solution approach with examples.
1.Lab order will be splitted based on Sample types.
2. If any of the test is of high priority the entire sample is of high priority, which means that for the tests which is of high priority and for the test which is of low priority the sample will be collected at the same time.
Sang - CD4(IPD), Haemoglobine(High priority)
Urine - Protiens and Nitrites (High priority)
Lab order will be divided based on Sample type:
Option1: Since one test from each sample is of high priority, the entire sample will become high priority.
So it will generate two accessions but separated by sample types (unlike before).
Option 2: We split out the tests of high priority into different accession
Accession 1: Sang - having test(s) Haemoglobin
Accession 2: Urine - having test(s) Nitrites
Sang - CD4
Urine - Protien
What we heard from different implementations is even though only one test is of high priority in a sample, lab technicians will collect the sample at a time and distribute it to different tubes(to store the sample). So OPD/IPD patients will not come back to Lab to give the same sample for multiple times. So we are planning to go ahead with Option1.
