Our hospital has gone to Order Entry but we still use the paper reqs.  We receive a copy of the EMR (electronic Medical record) with each in-house specimen.  It took a little doing for nursing to get the required info in the right places but it works well.

Subject: [Histonet] Meditech and Computer Requisitions vs Paper Req's

Our hospital uses Meditech and in the near future we are going to go to CPOE (computerized physician order entry).  We currently are the only dept that uses paper requisitions for Surgical Specimens and Cytology.  For those of you out there that has gone through this transition, can you share any issues you have had?  Thank you.
