Hi!  We are a new client of Copath--we went live May 30 of this year.  It
an interesting transition, and a great learning experience.  We have found 
that specimen accessioning (surgicals and gyn) takes approximately 3 times 
longer than Sunquest accessioning.  Rather than just typing on the keyboard,

we are now having to type as well as use the mouse to move from various 
windows and tabs.  The good thing about Copath is the computerization of 
consult material (we were previously recording all consults on forms which 
were then filed)  Right now we are doing both methods only because we are 
still in transition, but in the future I hope that we can eliminate the
file.  There are many good features with Copath and someone down the line 
from us techs and accessioners definitely benefits by way of information 
retrieval and ease of generating reports.  We are still working out the
and have a few minor adjustments to make, but overall it is a good system.
have nothing  but Sunquest to compare it to and the fact that it is 
Windows-based makes it an improvement over Sunquest.  Hope this helps!
