[Histonet] CPT for H&E

From:"Heckford, Karen - SMMC-SF"

Happy Monday,  The big wigs here have changed our productivity and the way
of calculating it on us.  I am trying to find procedures that are not
getting into the system.  We have the older Version of Powerpath.  I noticed
this morning that the H&E stains do not have a CPT code neither does H&E
levels of their own.. I am not sure but I thought that the H&E should have a
CPT code since we do this lab order on all of our tissue specimens or does
it fall on under the CPT for that particular specimen.  This should really
bring up our productivity if it is individual.  Please let me know how other
hospitals are doing this?
