COVID-19 LaboratoryTestPrescription

COVID-19 LaboratoryTestPrescription

When patients visit a physician, being a general practitioner, or working at a triage post or hospital, and the patient meets criteria for a test, the physician needs to complete a specific COVID-19 LaboratoryTestPrescription form, as described in section “5. Description of the COVID-19 messages”.

The COVID-19 LaboratoryTestPrescription form is a specific form because it includes detailed contact information of the patient, the contact person(s) in case of emergency (ICU), language and the type of collectivities the patient is part of. This information is important in context of contact tracing by the COVID-19 Call Center.

COVID-19 LaboratoryTestResultVariants

COVID-19 LaboratoryTestResultVariants

The federal, regional and community governments and experts have decided to expand the COVID-19 Test strategy. It concerns the use of COVID-19 tests to detect mutations and variants of the SARS-coronavirus-2 reference strain EPI_ISL_402124 . These tests will be used in a limited number of laboratories. ONLY those laboratories need to implement this message "LaboratoryTestResultVariants".

IMPORTANT: This message (available since 01/03/2021, in use as of 31.03.2021) can ONLY be used to report the results of a secondary test or analysis for Variants of Concern. Thus, the message "LaboratoryTestResultVariants" is always preceded by a COVID-19 "LaboratoryTestResult" message , either by the same laboratory or by another laboratory.

COVID-19 LaboratoryTestRequest

COVID-19 LaboratoryTestRequest

The eForm LaboratoryTestRequest is the standardized electronic message developed by Doclr and SMALS that is sent to a laboratory, which has to perform a COVID-19 test, in addition to the sample taken. This electronic message is sent to the eHealth box of the laboratory by the doctor or the sampling station that collects the sample. It can thus be sent by

  • the software package of a general practitioner who takes a sample
  • the generic web application that is available to doctors of public health organizations or occupational physicians, if these doctors take a sample
  • the software package of a sampling station or a generic web application that is available to the sampling stations, if the sample is collected at a sampling station

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.

A. Content of the messages

Valuesets


Points of attention

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.

  • In case the patient has a NISS or a NISS Bis number, the regular address information, date of birth and gender should not be provided. This information is available at the COVID-19 central database, through ConsultRN.
  • In case the patient has no NISS or a NISS Bis number, a NISS should be created using the ConsultRN integration in EMD or HIS:
  • In case the patient is a minor (child), one of the parents, guardian or legal representative, should be provided as first contact person to (“FirstNamesContp1”; “LastNameContp1”; “TelephoneNumberMobileContp1”).

B. Format of the requested file

B.1. JAVASCRIPT OBJECT NOTATION (JSON)

Every requested field has to be provided also the optional fields, even when the values are missing or false. The reason is that this way every record will have the same structure. Although this is not necessary, this assures us that the field names are correctly spelled. If we do not find a field, we will know something is wrong and we can act upon this.
The structure of the record is completely flattened and this is done on purpose. This makes it easier and more transparent to load the data in a database and compare the original record with the result programmatically.

You can find the links to examples of the four messages in JSON format in this folder:

Example of message “LaboratoryTestPrescription” in JSON format
Example of message “LaboratoryTestResult” in JSON format
Example of message “LaboratoryTestResultVariants” in JSON format
Example of message "RapidTestResult" in JSON format
Example of message “ResultFlagsSuspicionFalseNegativeTest” in JSON format
Example of message “ResultFlagsSuspicionFalsePositiveTest” in JSON format
Example of message “AlertSuspectedCaseNoTestPerformed” in JSON format

Name of the JSON messages

We kindly ask you to use following names for the JSON messages:

  • RIZIVnrSender_LaboratoryTestPrescription_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_LaboratoryTestResult_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_LaboratoryTestResultVariants_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_RapidTestResult_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_ResultFlagsSuspicionFalseNegativeTest_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_ResultFlagsSuspicionFalsePositiveTest_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_AlertSuspectedCaseNoTestPerformed_yymmddhhmmss

Points of attention

  • Multiple records can be included in a .json file.
  • All records should have exactly the same structure (missing values and ‘false’ have to be present also).

B.2. Comma-Separated Values (CSV)

Every requested field has to be provided, including the optional fields, even when the values are missing or false. The reason is that this way every record will have the same structure. In a csv containing more than 1 record this has of course be the case. This way the complete csv can be treated as one table.

You can find links to an example for each of the four messages in CSV format in this folder:

Example of message “LaboratoryTestPrescription” in CSV format
Example of message “LaboratoryTestResult” in CSV format
Example of message “LaboratoryTestResultVariants” in CSV format
Example of message "RapidTestResult" in CSV format
Example of message “ResultFlagsSuspicionFalseNegativeTest” in CSV format
Example of message “ResultFlagsSuspicionFalsePositiveTest” in CSV format
Example of message “AlertSuspectedCaseNoTestPerformed” in CSV format

Name of the CSV messages

We kindly ask you to use following names for the csv files:

  • RIZIVnrSender_LaboratoryTestPrescription_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_LaboratoryTestResult_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_LaboratoryTestResultVariants_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_RapidTestResult_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_ResultFlagsSuspicionFalseNegativeTest_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_ResultFlagsSuspicionFalsePositiveTest_yymmddhhmmss
  • RIZIVnrSender_AlertSuspectedCaseNoTestPerformed_yymmddhhmmss

Points of attention

  • A csv can contain multiple records.
  • All records should have exactly the same structure (missing values and ‘false’ have to be present also).

C. Description of the transportation methods

C.1. EFORM

An eForm has been created for this specific purpose containing all the requested fields. The data on the eForm will be transformed into the required csv and sent via the eHBox to the eHBox of the COVID19 Laboratory Test Result Database.


C.2. EHBOX

If eForm is not an option you can use the eHBox directly for sending the required json or csv files following the specifications mentioned in this document.

Please send the message to the following address:

  • ehealth environment: production
  • type: “EHP”
  • value: “1990003696”
  • application ID: “” (an empty string)
  • quality: “INSTITUTION_EHP”

Points of attention

  • Add a “document title” (also called “description”) for the message.
  • Send the “content” (or “payload”) as an attachment (“annex” in ehbox terminology).
  • The file format has to be non-binary, e.g. JSON or CSV.
  • We only support 1 attachment per message; if you want to send multiple attachments, you’ll have to send them as multiple messages.
  • The encoding of the attachment is expected to be in UTF-8.

C.3. sFTP

We also give you the possibility to send us the requested files directly to our SFTP server. If you opt for this solution, we need you to give us information so we can set it up specifically for your organization. You can do this by sending a mail to covid19lab.healthdata@sciensano.be.

The mail has to contain:

  • Organization name
  • Email address of the person of your organization who will receive
    • the account information
    • the public key to use when authenticating
    • A document describing the connection information
    • a test file that we would like you to send to our SFTP server

Points of attention

In the case of SFTP we have to be sure that the complete file has arrived before reading the file. We propose to do this by means of another file with the same name as the file with the data but with extension ‘ok’. You have to send this ‘.ok’ file after sending the file with the data. This way we know which files are ready for integration.

  • The encoding of the file is expected to be in UTF-8.

C.4. HTTPS

As a final resort we have setup a HTTPS page. This way you avoid having to use a SFTP client. The files however have to be loaded manually. If you opt for this solution we need you to give us information so we can set it up specifically for your organization. You can do this by sending a mail to covid19lab.healthdata@sciensano.be.

The mail has to contain:

  • Organization name
  • Email address of the person of your organization who will receive
    • the account information
    • A document describing the connection information
    • a test file that we would like you to upload via our HTTPS site.

  • Official communication to the triage post about use of national COVID-19 testing platform is expected on Saturday May 2nd. 2020.

C. Software solutions for Hospitals

Physicians working at a hospital should be able to encode the COVID-19 LaboratoryTestPrescription form in their Hospital Information System or Laboratory Information System. Due to its specificity, it is unlikely that these systems currently are able to capture the requested information in the requested format. Therefore, the creation of a HIS of LIS integrated or “stand alone form” by hospital IT staff or the IT service provider of the hospital is advised.
