Who May Use This Service
Submitters may be granted access to test result data via a secure internet portal for tests performed at the Oregon State Public Health Laboratory (OSPHL). Microbiology/Virology and Newborn Screening patient test result information may be viewed, sorted, searched, printed and/or copied. Submitters may view only test results on specimens that they submitted.

The AAG assures that access rights are used only within the responsibilities of job requirements, and notifies the OSPHL when individuals terminate employment or change job duties eliminating the need for access.

c) Access Authorization Statement - The AAG attests that the applicant has facility approval to apply for OSPHL Web Access to Test Results.
