Step 6:

Name of the link logic

The link that you create in step 5 is very important as it will be the one that will connect to the LabCollector’s LSMRemote portal.
So to name it you need to know 2 things from the Lab which has LabCollector with LSM add-on and access to superadmin  user level.

1. Name in the config.ini

2. Requester ID in LSM

Be Careful note
When a lab has many requesters/clients the name in the config.ini will be a common one to which the requesters can link their ID.
For example if agilebio lab has 3 requesters with ID 1, 2 & 3, then the name in config.ini will be “agilebio” and the requesters will add their IDs individually to them.
Their links on acuity will be:
– https://agilebioreq1.as.me
– https://agilebioreq2.as.me
– https://agilebioreq3.as.me

Step 7: 

The link that you created will now be linked to the LSMRemote, job pre-registration.

Step 8

When the patients click on the job pre-registration option the scheduling option will be greyed out (not usable) until the requester is chosen.

As soon as the requester is chosen the “Choose appointment” option will be available to book the appointment.
