I recently attended a benchmarking and productivity session at the CLMA Conference in Anaheim. "What Senior Management Wants to Know" by Ellen Neiduski, Applied Management System Inc. Ellen shared several industry benchmarks her firm uses for operational reviews. 

The Histology benchmark presented was 3.2 - 3.5 blocks per paid hour. The paid hour includes all staff from accessioning to slides out to pathologists, so no transcriptionist's time. Paid hour is more comprehensive than FTE and covers actual hours paid out - vacation, sick, overtime, relief, etc.
