FAQ

General

What is My Viollier?

Reports and results

When will I be able to see my results in My Viollier?

The availability of the results depends on the analysis time and frequency. Most results will become available on the same day that the sample material arrives in the laboratory. As soon as a result is available, it will be shown in real time.

Why can’t I see any reports after logging in?

This may be caused by one of the following reasons:

  1. Your doctor has not yet granted you access to the orders he has commissioned, and you have therefore not yet received a SMS to activate your account from Viollier. Ask your doctor to approve your access to My Viollier.
  2. Your doctor has approved your access and you have received the SMS from Viollier, but you have not yet clicked on the link provided.  Click on the link in the SMS you received.
  3. Your doctor has given you access and you have clicked on the link in the SMS you received from Viollier, but you did not confirm your access by providing your date of birth and AHV no. in My Viollier within 7 days. Ask your doctor to approve your access to My Viollier again.
  4. There are no reports available yet. Check again later.

What are the reference values or reference ranges?

The reference values indicate the values measured in approximately 95% of healthy people. That means that one in every twenty healthy individuals is outside this reference range. A value outside the reference range does not automatically mean that you are ill. The doctor treating you needs to assess the results together with your symptoms and other test results.

The testing laboratory’s reference values help your doctor assess your results. Some reference ranges are dependent on the patient’s age or sex, as well as on the analysis methods used to carry out the measurement. This means that results from different laboratories may not be directly comparable, as different analysis methods may have been used to obtain them.

Who can I speak to about interpreting my results?

Speak to your doctor who ordered the analysis if you have any questions about your results.

Can Viollier help me in interpreting my results?

No. Viollier cannot provide any additional information about your results beyond the reference values shown in the reports. In most cases, Viollier is not aware of the medical issue being considered, the indications that prompted the analysis, the results of other tests, or other clinical information about your health. This information is vital for interpreting the results. For this reason, your doctor must consider the results along with your symptoms and all other information and test results in order to interpret them.

Can I share my reports with third parties?

You can open the report as a PDF file in My Viollier. As reports contain particularly sensitive data, they should not be saved on your device or in the Cloud. If you wish to forward your reports to third parties, ensure that the transfer is carried out securely and using encryption.

Can I see the reports of my family members?

No, this is not possible in the current version of My Viollier. All patients must be registered individually using a separate e-mail address.
