RE: accession/number/check/letters

From:"Horn, Hazel V" <>

I have never hearof "accession number check letters", but our computer
system, Meditech, does tell us when we try to enter a patient that has
already been entered for that day.    It has come  in handy in reducing
accessioning errors.   I am interested in finding out about this "accession
number check letters".   It sounds like it could be helpful?
