Good Morning!

I'm looking to see if anyone is currently tracking surgical path turn
around times.  I can remember using something from either ASCP or CAP
that tracked specimens from point of entry (gross room accession) to
final sign out back in the early 90's.  It was a random selection of
specimens and had to include all levels of complexity (ie- SNOMEDs and
institutional requirements for special procedures).  We did this
quarterly and our results were then measured against other
institutions that were similar to ours.  It was a lot of work to do,
but a great tool for improving services.
