[Histonet] Frozen Section TAT

We have recently started using our LIS to help with this. When the specimen is accessioned (in Cerner Millennium) as a frozen section, tasks are generated. Additional tasks can be added depending on how many slides or additional blocks are prepared for the FS. These tasks can then be verified when complete (i.e. when the pathologist calls the results to the OR). All of this is heavily relied upon by the person entering the tasks accurately and in a timely manner.  We have only started this process this week, so it will be interesting watching the trends. Reports can then be generated monthly and by pathologist.

Hello to all in histoland.  How is everyone calculating the FS TAT.
Does any anyone have a file that automatically calculates that tat when
you plug in the data, that they would be willing to share.  Any help
would be appreciated.
