RE: [Histonet] Paperless


The only hard paper copies we keep anymore are those that have attachments:
-Frozen section diagnosis form (even though we enter the frozen section
diagnosis in the computer in its own data sectin to become part of the
permanent report, we keep a copy of the original document that was signed at
the actual time of frozen section diagnosis).
-Stone analysis reports that get attached to the final copy of the report.
-Special studies sent out as part of the case (Disaccharidase studies,
HER-2/neu Immunos that get sent out, Consultations, etc...)

This has saved us a lot of space not saving hard copies of every path

Hope this helps,

Good morning.


Here is a  lab policy question.  How many of your labs keep a paper copy on
file of surgical path reports, and how many only keep an electronic copy?
