Our Medical Records Dept states that they need to see the orders for special stains and immunos made by the pathologists as a physician order for billing/compliance regulations. I believe that the stain documented in the report is evidence of that order.
We are attempting to find a way to make the order that the pathologist places in our computer system transfer to the hospital system, but I thought I would ask what the rest of you do regarding this issue.
Thanks in advance.
