Lab tests are ordered by providers only. All written lab scripts must have a provider's signature. Lab reports are entered into the clinic's computer system for the requesting provider's review. Patients requesting copies of their test results can obtain them from Outpatient Records or on TRICARE Online
. Patients with a lab order for a 1, 2, or 3 hour oral glucose tolerance test should come to the lab to receive instructions and schedule the test. If you are in need of a Quantiferon tuberculosis screening it must be collected at the Main Base Laboratory. Some lab tests require the patient to fast. Fasting means having nothing to eat or drink (except water) 9 to 12 hours before blood collection. The provider's orders should specify whether or not fasting is required. Unless the provider gives other instructions, patients should continue taking their medications, as prescribed, prior to having blood drawn.
