As you wrote, either you have to be diligent in recording your work, or you will have to modify the software of the LIS system to account correctly.
On the other hand, if you are dealing with liquid base samples usually using a Thin-Prep Imaging System (TIS) and the sample covers one-half or less of the slide surface, CLIA88 has expanded the limit from 100 to 200 slides/day.

Our Cytology Supervisor was telling me about the 100 slide maximum that they can screen in a day. Our LIS is not capturing the NON-GYN slides being screened, so unless you are very diligent in recording the slides screened, you could go over the 100 limit.

Our supervisor also believes the computer system should notify the user when the limit has been reached and prevent them from continuing. Is this a CAP requirement? How are you dealing with this problem or is it a problem for you?
