[Histonet] Cassette Identifier

Currently we have only the surgical number on our cassettes.  I really don't think that there is a problem with having a patient name, also, since cases sent out are, in our institution, for continuation of care.  Since this thread has come up it has made me think that a second identifier would probably be a good thing.  I'd be very interested in knowing what labeling method folks use, if an instrument, which one?is it interfaced to an AP computer system?, etc.  We have Cerner Millennium software and are checking with them to see what is available.
Thank you all so much for your help.
