  • Amaron klanten die reeds met WORKFLOWER werken, kunnen op AMARON beroep doen om de COVID-formulieren beschikbaar te maken in Workflower. Dat wil zeggen met zoveel mogelijk pre-fill op basis van de beschikbare koppelingen. Hierbij zal ook een takenlijst (voor het aanvullen van cruciale gegevens: ICE-contact, beroep, enz) mogelijk zijn. AMARON biedt ook overzichtslijsten ter opvolging intern. Van zodra het formulier compleet is, kunnen we ook een koppeling maken die mappings naar bv SNOMED-CT toepast en het bericht in het juiste formaat zet en klaarzet voor verzending (of zelf verzenden, TBD per instelling).

Triage posts

Triage posts

Triage posts are specifically designed centers to examine patients who may be infected with COVID-19. They do this after referral by a doctor. These patients do not have to go to a GP's waiting room or to a hospital emergency room where they can infect others. If necessary, the triage center will then refer them to the hospital for hospitalization. The centers are an initiative of doctors and governments and are part of primary care.

Each triage center is supervised by a medical officer who guarantees the daily functioning of the center. In addition, there are medical coordinators who are responsible for the organization, planning, distribution of doctors, etc.

Laboratories

Laboratories

Sciensano's legal mandate is to recognize, on behalf of the Minister, the laboratories for clinical biology and the laboratories for anatomopathology. The conditions, modalities and forms to be recognized as a laboratory can be found on the website of the Sciensano Laboratory Quality Service.

Compulsory health insurance reimburses the examinations carried out by a laboratory for clinical biology, anatomopathology or genetics that are included in the nomenclature of medical supplies, provided that these examinations are carried out in recognized laboratories and by qualified healthcare providers.

A. General

General COVID-19 information for laboratories can be found on NL FR

B. Messages

Only two types of messages towards the COVID-19 Test Results Database are relevant for laboratory staff:

Point of attention: the "CoronaTestPrescriptionCode" , the "TelephoneNumberMobilePat", "TelephoneNumberLLPat " are new fields in the message LaboratoryTestResult and address the requirements for contact tracing in the case a person receives a code (the CoronaTestPrescriptionCode) via SMS and is requested to visit a laboratory directly for sampling and testing. In that situation, no LaboratoryTestPrescription needs to completed by the laboratory staff. This process thus replaces the process as described in the recent circular letter of the Federal Public Service Public Health.

More information about the procedure and the CoronaTestPrescriptionCode can be found here (NL FR ).

All results (“Detected”, “Not detected”, “Inconclusive”) of laboratory tests for COVID-19 performed in Belgian intramural and extra mural laboratories should be reported to the central COVID-19 Test Result Database.
