Re: [Histonet] Help for Transcription

From:"Richard Cartun"

Good luck.  We have three transciptionists for a Department of 16
pathologists.  We do over 36,000 surgicals, almost 6,000 non-GYN
cytologies, 8,000 Hematopathology accessions, and 2,000 outside
consults.  Many of the pathologists type their own reports or use
"Dragon" voice recognition.  Transcriptionists (like Histotechnologists)
are an endangered species.

I need to justify additional transcriptionist hours. Would you please
do me a favor and ask your transcription department for the number of
minutes they have transcribed for Feb to date? - This can be found in
the transcription system, I assume. We have Lanier and we have access to
that info.
I'd like to know
# of cases
Number of gross minutes dictated:
Number of micro minutes dictated:
Number of transcriptionists:
Thanks for your help!
