External Results - LumiraDx Platform and HL7 Laboratory Test Results

INRstar can now accept INR test results from our patients who are self testers, via HL7 hospital laboratories and now the LumiraDx platform. 

The test results come directly into INRstar which, when successfully matched to a patient record, will allow you to dose a patient without the need to manually enter the INR yourself. 


To view and manage your test results click 'Patient' tab > 'Results' tab > 'INR' tab 

Clicking the ‘Dose Patient’ button takes you to the 'New INR' page to complete the treatment. 

Processing a LumiraDx Platform Test Result 

  • The New INR field will be prefilled with the INR from the test result, this cannot be amended. 

  • The Testing Method field will be prefilled with PoCT, this cannot be amended. 

  • The PoCT Batch field will be prefilled with the strip number used on the Platform and cannot be amended. 

Note that any comments entered onto the platform or a notification of a high / low INR will be displayed in the Comments box highlighted in bold text to make you aware of them. 

If the PoCT test strip has been deactivated within INRstar or the test is a day late in being completed and the batch has now expired, a warning message will be displayed to the user advising what actions can be taken.

Process a successfully matched LumiraDx Platform Test Result. 

The Patient ID field is not displayed.  INRstar will show you the name of the patient record that the test has been matched to and will be displayed in bold italics in the Patient column.  This will help you identify your patient from a list of results in case of any typing errors when entering patient details on the platform at the time of the test. 

If a test result was sent through from the platform without a patient name but has still successfully been matched by INRstar the patient column will be displayed like this. 

For patients who have been successfully matched you can click the ‘Dose Patient’ button and proceed.
