COVID-19 Reporting

Labs performing COVID-19 testing are required to report their test results daily to their state health departments which will then report those results to the CDC. The COVID-19 reporting feature is optional and must be enabled for your organization by your Customer Success Manager. To turn on the COVID-19 reporting feature, please email

Fax History Report

The Fax History report will show you all faxes that have been sent from your organization, in real time. You can filter results by Processing, Success, or Failed.

All faxes that are queued or in the process of being sent are shown as Processing. If a fax cannot be sent successfully on the first attempt, Ovation will attempt to resend 5 times.

Requisition Report

The Requisition Report contains data from requisition forms, report dates, turn around times, and any available billing metrics (if billing metrics are received from your Revenue Cycle Management company via HL7 or API connection).
