Good morning. Before you read the rest of this post, realize that I work in a veterinary lab and billing is a different animal (no pun intended). Our SOPs require the pathologists to contact the referring clinician prior to ordering special stains or IHC, and this must be documented in the pathology report. This is in accordance with audits from an external (certifying) agency. How are other vet labs complying with this? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Happy Friday,
