Specimen Collection for Pathology

The MediCopia Specimen Collection for Pathology application (Patent US9058636 B2) allows nurses in the OR, ASC or outpatient facilities to positively identify a patient, to label pathology specimens upon collection (per physician instruction) and to print specimen container labels on demand. Specimen containers are then tracked through delivery to the histology department.

Upon delivery to the histology department, the Specimen Collection application is used to reconcile containers versus requisition orders, using barcode technology to ensure that the right container matches the right patient with the right requisition order.

Specimen container labels contain data that is subsequently
utilized to automate the accessioning process, improving workflow and enhancing “receive in lab” productivity.

Patient safety is enhanced through positive-patient identification, proper container tracking, and integration with other MediCopia applications such as specimen collection, transfusion, medication administration and vitals measurement.
