Outside Lab Orders
Written requests are accepted from licensed providers outside of the Thomson Student Health Center. Orders may be faxed directly to the Laboratory at (803) 576-5668.
Appointments for outside orders may be made directly for the Laboratory through MyHealthSpace. Patients may wish to have their orders faxed or dropped off in advance to help expedite their return visit. Unusual lab requests may take additional time to set-up and order in the Health Service information System.
All orders must include:
• Two patient identifiers (name, date of birth or Social Security Number)
• Health care provider’s name and signature
• Health care providers phone and fax numbers
• Diagnosis code (DX)
• All tests clearly listed
• Any additional instructions like fasting requirements or repeat testing
