AP numbering systems: was: RE: A little survey

From:"Morken, Tim"

Joyce, Sounds like this was set up backwards. Instead of all these separate
file systems, why not have one central AP number for all cases and then
sub-numbering for the different groups. That way you keep everything for the
cases together under one number system and it will be easy to retreive all
relevant info for each case. The subnumbering will still allow you to break
out the subgroups as needed.

We have:
S- Surgicals (just consolidated IP and same day surgery this year)
B- IP Biopsies
O - OP 
BM - bonemarrow
FL - flow cytometry
SR - Slide review 
SS - Submitted slides (for our consult)
R - reference 

C - IP non-gyn
PN- OP non-gyn
P - OP gyn
CG - IP gyn

The biggest pain is all the separate file systems.

We have 3.   One for surgicals, SU.   One for autopsy, AC.   One for
cytology, CY.      

I'm curious as to why you would have so many prefixes?
