Patient history cards

From:"Fuller, Michelle" <>

Hello Everyone-

We have been live on our computer system since 1995.  Daily, for every
surgical case that we receive in the lab, we have to look in three
different card files (due to the fact that we have merged with 2 other
hospitals) to see if that patient has any previous history cards. (We
average about 80-90 cases a day.)  Some of our Pathologist feel that it
is very important to have this available to them, others do not even
look for past history.  In an effort to streamline our workflow, we are
interested in how other facilities handle this.  

Thanks in advance for any information.
