Could you not use something like the number of recuts, reembeds, staining
repeats for something like that?  For each parameter u could list
suggestions for improving those repeat test to lower the numbers from month
to month.

I would recommend data, that are available through lab-IT. It is a kind of
frustrating and time-consuming, if you have to monitor daily a large number
of figures. 
E.g. we have an "incoming" time and a "ready of report" time in our system,
that tells us the mean-time of histology testing.

Or for medical results, the system should have the possibility to monitor
the single parameters (e.g. estrogen positivity). So one can create a report
out of IT.
Everything you put into the system, should give you a report.

And you should choose parameters, that can really be altered by yourself, if
you are not content with the result.
Often we see a problem, but everyone says: there's nothing we can change...
that's out of our control.

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
