Reference Laboratories

Quest Diagnostics is the primary reference laboratory for Guthrie Laboratory Services. Quest Diagnostics performs tests that are done infrequently and tests for rare conditions that require special expertise and equipment.

EpicCare Link

What is EpicCare Link?

EpicCare Link is Epic’s web-based application for connecting community practices to Guthrie. This provides community practices access to select information for their patients, without the need for time-intensive phone calls, faxing, etc. Although EpicCare Link is not an EMR solution, it does provide patient information in a secure, read-only environment.

In addition, EpicCare Link can be used to enter procedure orders for laboratory and radiology studies to be done at Guthrie facilities. Since these are orders for direct patient care, these can only be entered by a provider (MD or APP).

To request access for your practice, please contact:
