Pathology Conversion Request

Pathology Conversion Request

TPP wish to provide comparable units of measurement for all results received to assist clinicians as patients’ electronic records move around the country.

TPP will incorporate a conversion factor into the filing mechanism in SystmOne to allow this.

Please note: the original pathology message is not changed.

Please provide a conversion factor for the unit of measurement that you wish to send to SystmOne against a Read code for a pathology result. Once the form has been completed please press ‘submit’.

TPP will then review the requested conversion and respond as appropriate.

Please note: where the laboratory units of measurement differ fundamentally from the SystmOne UOM please check with the laboratory that the Read coded result received was the test they actually performed.
