[Histonet] LEAN Processes/ new lab

Hi Nancy,

For labeling and identification our company provides a LEAN solution that allows you to print-on-demand using barcodes from cassettes, specimen containers, or requisition forms.  This can eliminate batch processing, keyboard entry, handwriting, and adhesive labels from your workflow.  Patient information is drawn from your LIS so there's always a single data source for everything that gets printed.  The solution works for histology and cytology (including Hologic ThinPrep and BD Focal Point processors).  The solution, overall, provides a LEAN, Zero Inventory, workflow with On-Demand printing at the microtome or cytology processor.  I'd be happy to answer any questions or go into greater detail about how a process like this can work for you.  Feel free to contact me if you would like to know more.

Best Regards,

Hi Nancy,

We built a brand new pathology lab from the bottom up last year. Drop
me an email off line or give me a call and we can discuss our lessons
learned etc. I worked with a LEAN workflow specialist on the design and
equipment placement prior to the plans being approved. We included the
architect in all of out discussions about this. You can always come to
snowy New Hampshire and check it out yourself?

Hi Histonetters-
I am looking for input, pros and cons or anything else you can offer.
We are designing a new histology lab to move to and I am interested in
how others have handled this along with using LEAN processes. What
would you do differently? What would you do the same? Are you in the
tri-state (IA, WI, MN) area and open to visitors?

Thank you in advance for your thoughts-
