RE: [Histonet] Help please from Cerner Millennium users

From:"Martin, Gary"

We separate out cytology and surgical with a different prefix and there
are no problems.  As a matter of fact it is easier to collect data for
various reports. I'm not sure but it may matter when it comes to
billing.  I think I remember our billing person commenting that there
were denials when the two are bunched together.

Subject: [Histonet] Help please from Cerner Millennium users

   We are six weeks into go live with Cerner Mil=ennium and our Medical
   Director  (who  could  not be bothered to give much in=ut during the
   build)  has  suddenly  decided that the way Millennium splits u= our
   fluids  and  tissues  is  "unacceptable".   She has real issues with
bronch  bx  and washings being taken in the same procedure but getting
   separa=e SP and CY accession numbers.  We have done what we could on
   our end=y keeping the specimens together when they are turned out to
   the  patholog=ists  and  by  making  order  comments  on  each  case
   referencing  the  other  access=on number.  My question is, how have
   other labs handled this issue?&n=sp; Is this as big of a deal as she
   is  making  it  out  to be?  The path=logist who did give some input
   into  our  build did not seem to have a probl=m with this and helped
   us find our current solution.  What have other=s experiences been?
