Re: [Histonet] Physician orders

From:Rene J Buesa

Our pathologists either requested the special stains after the initial H&E was received as part of their initial report (in the computer) and the secretaries transferred the request to the lab OR the PT wrote the requests in special forms (one for HC and the other for IHC) that were sent to the lab. The lab sent the forms to the office for billing.
  If the case was a "rush" the initial report was sent to the referring physician with a note of "special stains to follow" and the additional report (as an addendum) was issued on a later date.

  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. 

Happy Friday!
