We went live with CoPath today and I'm assuming we will still have jobs
tomorrow. It actually went pretty well. We got all our specimens accessioned
and none of the equipment started to smoke so I guess that was an
accomplishment. Tomorrow will be a truer test when we try to print logs and
slides labels and enter recuts, special stains, etc. I think we have a
pretty good idea how to do it if the machines and the software will
cooperate. We're on a network with two sister hospitals in Austin and that
might have made this a little more complicated than it otherwise would have
been. It certainly created a long delay in implementation.
We got a lot of great tips from histonetters around the country that helped
clear up a lot of the fuzzy areas. CoPath seems like a good system and in a
few months we'll probably wonder how we ever got along without it.
By the way, I appreciate all the good words about veterans. I spent three
years protecting Biloxi, Miss. It was a dirty job, but somebody had to do
Thanks again to everyone.
