Reference Lab Network

Reference Lab Network

Reference Lab Network (RLN) creates a single point of connectivity for acute and reference labs, eliminating the need for multiple connections to individual labs.

RLN supports labs by managing their entire network. RLN creates seamless processes for ordering and result delivery. This ensures the right tests go to the right lab using fewer connections.

If I connect to the RLN, how will the end user workflow be affected?

RLN takes place behind the scenes, so there will be no impact to the end user workflow.

No, no extra hardware is needed.

The ability to connect is based on the business, not on its volume.
