We have Cerner and we do have nursing/physician place order in computer.  All tissue specimens also have a card filled out with information for the card file.  Do you have the total Cerner package, as in PowerChart, Pathnet, SurgNet, etc?  If so, it depends on how your system is set up.  Ours is set to interface results to PowerChart no matter where the order originated.  If you want to discuss this further please contact me offline.

Can anyone who uses Cerner tell me how they get the tissues ordered from the OR...GI ..etc??? We have always had the OR order them..but they also send a card for the pathos....do we really need to have them order them????? Or should we do it in Histology?? My concern is ...if we let them out of ordering..will it be on the patient record in Cerner??? Will we have to keep the paper requests forever??? What are the ramifications?? Can anyone give me a clue as to where to go with this??? Im in Delaware!
