[Histonet] Meditech LIS

We have Meditech.   We do not have to enter a history to accession.   We
accession the specimens in Meditech.   We print a worksheet every
morning for slide check out.   We do not use the worksheet for grossing
because the specimens may not have been entered into Meditech yet at the
time of grossing.  (we still use a log book as well) We use a separate
log for the grossing/embedding worksheet.
We print all our slide labels in Meditech.  
We are on version 5.5.

Can someone that uses Meditech in Pathology give me some feedback on the
system.  To what capacity do you use it in Pathology/Histology?  Do you
use it to accession specimens in the grossing room?  Do you use it to
print up a worklist at the end of the day that the histotechs will use
for embedding and cutting?  Do you print cassettes, slides, and/or slide
labels using the system?  Can you pull statistics out?  
Although we are getting Meditech in Pathology, I have been told that we
will not be getting it in the grossing room, because we would have to
pull up the histories when we are accessioning.  Right now we use a
typewriter to log everything in.  I have worked with several LIS systems
before, and we were able to just enter very basic info in order to
accession the specimens.
I would appreciate any info that you can give me - thanks!
