I don't know what version you're working with but we have 4.9 and I may be wrong but I don't think you can link procedures to a specific tissue mnemonic.  The only way that I know of is to create a new Medical Term for those specimens.  At the Term Type prompt, enter TIS (tissue) then on the second screen, you can enter default procedures.  You would then enter this as a procedure and it will explode the attached procedures.  I have used it for bone marrows.  I know it's not quite what you're looking for but entering one procedure is a little better than entering three.  As for labels,  we don't use them so I can't help you there.

Hi -

We are currently implementing the Meditech computer system.  I am interested in talking with anyone who has experience with building the Histology portion.  We are experiencing great difficulty in trying to streamline the entry of specimens with tests attached to the specimens.  For example:  a liver biopsy with an iron, trichrome and retic stain attached.  We would like to have the tests attached to the specimen, and be able to print labels for the slides as well.  Can anyone out there help me find the answer?
