[Histonet] LIS in cytology labs

We have a specimen accessioning area in both Histology and Cytology. Specimens are accessioned as they are received - into LIS with patient info. The patients or outpatient specimens are first registered into the hospital IS. A medical record number, name or social security number pulls the patient info into the LIS from the hospital system.

The requisitions and specimen containers are then labeled with a bar code label and moved the grossing/ThinPrep processing area.

Hope this helps! j:>)

Dear netters,
I wonder how do other cyto/patho labs use the LIS in their workflow,
especially at the sample arrival and accessioning, how do you generate
sample numbers, do you have to enter patient data first to get new number,
do you have PC on the dirty desk where the samples are receiving, do you
have two technicians to access the samples, one for the data entry and one
for the sample accessioning?
your responses would be very appreciated
