Adding a Provider Account

This article describes steps for setting up your Provider accounts and is organized as follows:

Important: The Sales Rep MUST be added before creating the Provider Account in OvDx. If your lab does not have Sales Reps, you must create a place-holder sales rep before adding any provider accounts. For more details, please see Setting up Accounts - Full Guide or  Adding a Sales Rep article in our knowledge base.

Adding Provider Accounts Manually

1. Go to More > Business > Provider Accounts

2. Click the green “Add Provider Account” button

3. Choose “Add New Provider Account,” then fill in the account information: 

     A. Fill in the demographic information, noting that the account name is a required field.

Tip: Select the “Use Street Address” checkbox if the mailing address is the same as the street address. The mailing address is what will be used as the auto-fill option on requisition forms.

     B. Select the Sales Rep who will be responsible for this account. 

     C. Choose whether the account will receive faxed and/or emailed reports under Report Delivery Preferences.

Tip: If adding a fax number, enter only numbers (no dashes) and be sure to include the country code. For example, add a “1” at the beginning of US fax numbers.
Tip: For any contacts to receive emailed reports, the Email Report Delivery Preference must be turned on at this Provider Account page, as well as on the contact page - see Adding Provider Contacts, below.

     D. (Optional): Under Other Settings you will see a toggle for “Secondary Service Provider.”  This toggle defaults to off but, if you want to associate this account to an existing Sales Account, you may turn this toggle on. Contact success@ovation.io to get help configuring secondary service providers. 

     E. Click the green “Create” button.

Importing Provider Accounts

1. Go to More > Business > Provider Accounts

2. Click the green “Add Provider Account” button

3. Choose “Import Provider Accounts.”

     A. If a template file is needed, click “Download Template File”

     B. Drag & drop or Browse to upload a .csv file with the provider account information 

     C. Click the “Submit” button

Adding Providers

In OvDx, a Provider is defined as the person ordering a diagnostic test for a patient. Providers will need a National Provider Identifier (NPI), which is a unique 10-digit identification number issued to health care providers in the United States by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Non-US providers can also be added by selecting the appropriate category from the orange License Registry drop down menu.

1. Select the Providers tab to add providers to this account.

2. Click the green “Add Provider” button.

3. Enter the NPI# in the search box provided (the Provider name will appear automatically once a valid NPI# is entered).

4. Click the green “Create” button

Note: If your Provider doesn’t have an NPI, you can select “ex-US / clinical trial” from the License Registry drop-down and fill in any registration number (will not be validated) and the Provider Name.

Adding Provider Contacts

A Provider Contact is an individual that will be given Portal access on a Provider’s behalf.

1. Select the Contacts tab to add provider account contacts

2. Click the green “Add Contact” button

3. Enter the contact information, noting that first name, last name, email and communication preference fields are required.

4. If you are using the Portal Provider Signature feature, choose the appropriate Role for the contact. If you are not using the Portal Provider Signature feature, leave the Role as “None.”

5. If needed, select the Primary Contact checkbox to allow access to the Analytics page in the Portal.

6. If reports should be delivered to this contact, select the delivery preference of Fax and/or Email. 

Note: If reports will be emailed to this contact, then the Email toggle must be turned on in this screen, as well as the Email toggle in the Info tab of the Provider Account - see step 4, above.

7. Associate Providers to this Contact in the Choose New Providers drop down menu.

Note: At least one Provider must be associated in order for that contact to receive an email prompting them to set up their password for the Provider Portal.

8. Click the green “Create” button. 

Tip: If adding a fax number, enter only numbers (no dashes) and be sure to include the country code. For example, add a “1” at the beginning of US fax numbers.

Tip: Contact fields can be edited/updated after the new contact is created. If the email field is edited, a notification will be sent to that new email to prompt the contact to set up a new password for the Provider Portal.
Tip: Portal password emails can be resent by clicking the 3 dots to the far right of the contact on the Contacts page.

Adding Secondary Providers (optional)

Add secondary service providers in the Secondary Providers tab. Contact success@ovation.io to get help configuring secondary service providers.

Associating Order Forms to Provider Accounts (optional)

1. Select the Order Forms tab to choose which requisition templates are accessible during Online Order Entry in the Provider Portal.

2. Click the green “Add Order Form” button.

3. Enter the Display name, then select the Project, and Requisition Template.

Tip: The display name is what the contact will see when placing an order via the Provider Portal.

4. Click the green “Submit” button.
