OvDx Release Notes May 2020

Receive Samples

We’ve added a new “Samples” page where you can efficiently accession multiple samples and track their progress. To accession a sample, users can scan or type in sample or container identifier(s) or upload a csv file. Ovation will automatically search for requisitions with matching identifiers to mark the samples as received. If a sample is not found, users can search by patient information or by requisition number to assign a requisition to a sample. 

Note: to activate the next three features, please contact succes@ovation.io

Requisition Comments 

Now, you can communicate with lab staff, sales reps, and providers using comments on requisitions.  Comments can be set to be visible by lab staff only, sales reps, providers, or all users.  You can also mention users or user roles in comments to notify them via email. To enable Comments, navigate to Administration > Display Preferences.

Click the chat icon in the lower right hand corner for quick access to comments as you’re navigating through a requisition.

Email Notifications

Email is another very important tool, and we want to help you configure your notifications.  You can configure your notification preferences to receive emails for system notifications and comments. To update your notification settings click on your username, then click Settings.

System Notifications (requires “Notifications” user role):

  • When requisitions are submitted via online order (UPDATE: As of 5/22/2020, this feature is under construction)
  • When requisitions are submitted via external system (UPDATE: As of 5/22/2020, this feature is under construction)
  • When fax report delivery fails


  • When comments are added
  • When you are mentioned in a comment

Fax History

Faxes are an important tool in your arsenal, and now you can view your fax history.  To view your fax history, check a fax status and resend failed faxes go to the Fax History dashboard in Analytics, then click Fax History.  If you want to receive email notifications about failed faxes, please contact success@ovation.io
