Optimizing Automated Tissue Processing Efficiency To Reduce Cost
Cost-effectively managing a large pathology lab while maintaining the high level of quality required by a world-renowned medical center is a difficult balancing act for any hospital administration.
Reducing Batch Size to Improve Slide Turnaround Time
QEH is most interested in having slides assigned to their Pathologists earlier in the day.
Benefits of a Microtome Anti-Static Tray
Anti-static microtome paraffin trays are a great option to reduce the time it takes to clean your equipment. Learn more about the benefits of anti-static trays.
Improvement Opportunities Identified from Breast Programs in the United States
Read how the National Consortium of Breast Centers and Leica Biosystems worked with hospitals to improve the quality and efficiencies of their breast programs.
Identifying Process Improvements in Breast Imaging
Read how an hospital identified opportunities for improvement by comparing their internal data with standards and benchmarks provided by the National Consortium of Breast Centers (NCBC).
Mitigating Risk and Improving Patient Safety
Today’s hectic laboratory environment is driving the need to increase productivity while at the same time improving quality and patient safety.
Accurate Monitoring by Specialist Teams Reduces the Time Between Breast Cancer Screening and Initial Surgical Treatment.
Variation in care delivery and turnaround times can be reduced by accurately examining the patient care path from initial screening mammography to first surgical intervention. We have developed a process to optimize timeliness to initial surgical treatment.
Benefits of Implementing a Specimen Tracking System (STS) in Anatomic Pathology
Anatomic pathology has historically relied on manual systems of tracking and data collection. Bar coding and tracking can be used to capture and manage data as well as help histology create standard work in its processes.
Optimizing Breast Cancer Pathology Report Delivery
Leica Biosystems’ team of clinical and process experts conducted on site observations of processes, from the time a patient entered the biopsy suite, until the time their pathology report with diagnosis was delivered.
Adequate Core Biopsy Samples from Stereotactic Biopsies Needed for Today’s Breast Pathology
Get tips for better IHC in this guide. Each step provides a valuable reminder of good histology practice and also helps with troubleshooting when unacceptable results do occur.
