How about mislabeled specimens (blocks or slides), number of repeated stains (specials or ihc), floaters, TAT, or correlations? Just look at the CAP checklist for ideas, you will be surprised at how many ideas you can get from that!

Subject: [Histonet] Process Improvements

Hi everyone,

My new manager would like me to come up with a list of process/performance improvements in the pathology department that can be measured on a monthly/quarterly basis, such as they do for other departments in the hospital, i.e. the ER measures the number of patient falls with <5 per quarter being their goal.  I need advice on what to measure for our histology/pathology/cytology departments.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you
