I don't know this system, but is there no possibility to record this time directly in the grossing description?

Betreff: [Histonet] Recording formalin "out times"

Anyone out there using CoPath "paper free"? We are trying to use as little paper as possible, and have yet to come up with a good way/place to record the times that breast tissue comes out of formalin. If we use the "comment" line, the poor tech who scans the cassettes into CoPath must enter the time on every case, which can be way too many cases to make this feasible. We have also tried putting the out time as the name of the run, but the pathologists, who want this info in the report, can't easily see this information, and end up calling us for it.

Any help would be appreciated, and vendors: Are you listening? Make this part of your LIS  product, please.

Thank you all,

Wanda Shotsberger Gray
