The difficulty of sending orders from the Surgical / Endoscopy Suites and Ambulatory to the Pathology Department has for many years frustrated both the nursing and pathology staff. This was due to several factors: the lack of the interface between OM to PTH, the need to process multiple specimens in the same order and mapping tissues. Within the recent release of MEDITECH Expanse it is now available to fulfill these requirements. This presentation will demonstrate by utilizing these routines, how the site will increase patient's safety by eliminating handwritten orders, missing or delayed orders / specimens, and decrease turn-around time which will improve continuity of care.
