Clinical lab reports are the backbone of communication between lab professionals and healthcare providers. These reports ensure that crucial information about a patient’s condition, diagnosis, and treatment is documented and accurately conveyed. However, these reports often contain technical terms and medical jargon that can be daunting to those outside the medical field.

To bridge this gap and empower patients, caregivers, and even budding healthcare professionals with a deeper understanding, OMPRN has created a glossary of common terms found in clinical lab reports. This glossary aims to demystify the terms frequently encountered in medical documents as a way of fostering informed discussions and facilitating better understanding of healthcare information.

This glossary serves as a valuable resource for enhancing health literacy and promoting patient-centered care.
