RCPA  - APUTS Chemical Pathology Terminology Reference Set provides a set of terms for reporting chemical pathology in Australia and their associated codes and preferred units.

Specifically, it provides preferred terms and units for reporting chemical pathology test results, which can be used in the electronic communication of a pathology report.

Additionally, this reference set provides implementation guidance on whether it is safe for tests from different laboratories or from the same laboratory over time to be reported on the same line in a cumulative report or as points in the same line on a graph.

Tests that have a ‘combining results flag’ with the value of ‘red’ or ‘orange’ must NOT be shown as the same test in sequential display whether by graph or cumulative reporting if they come from different laboratories.
