A 43-year-old male asked:
If dr uses card to do fecal occult blood test (not sent out to a lab), how is the result usually recorded after the test? does the result go in my personal health record as well?

Usually yes: Patient-care information gathered in the office setting can be added to a patient's electronic medical record. For example, there may be a line in the Lab Results data sheet or in the Colon Cancer Screening page for the provider to enter the results of fecal occult blood testing. The abbreviation may be FOBT or iFOBT or FIT, depending on the type of test card.
