Amy, all our orders are thru our LIS, Copath Plus. Residents or pathologist order on their own. Except for grossed cases. They get standard panels ordered upon accession or grossing. 

Outside cases are all consults. Some are routine (for instance our kidney lab where we do routine panels) so they are ordered on accession. Others are custom order per pathologist review. 

I'm not sure what you mean by whether a "pathology report serves as a signed order for pathologist."

Happy Friday Everyone,

How do your pathologist get orders to the histology department? Are they sent manual(pencil/paper) - electronic through the case  - email?

Also how do you receive orders from outside facilities? We currently receive our orders via email or fax. This process needs to  be improved.

Do pathology reports serve as a signed order for pathologist?

Thanks in advance and I hope that everyone stays safe and has a great weekend.
