  • For test labs that receive a request to perform tests (jobs) on a sample from a requester (clinic, hospital, etc), our Lab Service Management (LSM) add-on is the best option. However, to make the process easier we offer our utility LSMRemote which helps both you and the requester. LSMRemote application can be integrated into the website of the requester (clinic, hospital, etc).
    *Please read our Knowledge Base on how to integrate LSMRemote int your website.
  • If you need to avoid an issue wth protocol http2; you need to add a file .htaccess in remote webservice folder, and it needs the mod_headers n LC server manager enabled. You need to go to LC SERVER MANAGER -> SETTINGS -> APACHE  and uncomment the line of mod_headers by removing the # sign.
