On June 1, 2016 there will be changes to the order detail for Tissue Pathology, Cytology, Microbiology and Body Fluids orders. These changes will improve specimen identification by increasing the information that prints on the specimen labels and standardize the information for specimen identification. Please review the Medium document “Specimen Labeling Changes for Pathology, Cytology, Microbiology” on the Medium-Central Hub for Provider EMR (Cerner) Support InSite page.
This will only affect providers that use the Cerner system to order (i.e. inpatient or emergency department).
