RE: [Histonet] "Hard Copies"of Reports

From:"Weems, Joyce"

We have not sent hard copies (with few exceptions) for years and years
(even before I came in 1997). We fax to the clinician and all reports
are imported into the electronic patient file (HPF) for Medical Records,
and into the hospital system (IDX). The report is available in IDX as
soon as it is signed out. Also, we now generate a frozen section report
that is signed out separately from the main report (one good thing that
our LIS does). It is available minutes after the frozen is completed. It
is then imported into the main report. This is a new thing - much
appreciated by the clinicians. 

Hope this might help!
