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, you will see it in real time.

How will I be informed of any reports? 

If you allow notifications for My Viollier in the settings of your smartphone, you will receive a push notification as soon as there is a new, definite report available for you. By a tap of a finger on the notification the corresponding report opens immediately.

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 an SMS with an activation code from Viollier in order to activate your account. → Ask your doctor to approve your access to My Viollier.
  2. Your doctor has granted you access and you have already received the SMS with an activation code from Viollier, but you have not yet entered the activation code into My Viollier. → Log in to My Viollier. Enter your AHV / AVS no., your date of birth and the activation code using the 'Activate access' button.
  3. Your doctor has given you access, you received an SMS with an activation code from Viollier, but you did not confirm your access by providing your date of birth, your AHV / AVS no. and your activation code in My Viollier within 7 days. → Ask your doctor to re-approve your access to My Viollier.
  4. There are no reports available yet. → Check again later.

What does 'Reference' stand for?

Reference is the value or range that is measured in the case of around 95% of healthy people. That means that one in every twenty healthy individuals is outside this reference range. A result that differs from reference 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?

Contact the prescribing doctor 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 have my results / reports displayed in another language?

Yes. You can access reports in My Viollier in the form of a PDF file – either in English, German, French or Italian.

Can I share my reports with third parties?

You can access reports in the form of a PDF file in My Viollier. As reports contain particularly sensitive medical 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. My Viollier gives you access to your personal laboratory history and thus to particularly sensitive medical data. For this reason, separate registration / activation using a personal e-mail address and AHV / AVS no. is required for each person. This also applies to people under the age of 18.
