Case Studies

Workflow study outputs highlighting qualitative and quantitative evidence.

Many pathology laboratories face similar issues in today’s healthcare environment: handling higher volumes of blocks and slides with fewer experienced histotechnologists. Many laboratories turn to lean assessments to help identify wastes in their current processes.

Tissue processing is one of the most critical elements of obtaining quality and timely results in the histology process. Ultimately, to obtain the desired quality processed tissue samples, separate processing runs may be required appropriate to tissue size.

QEH is most interested in having slides assigned to their Pathologists earlier in the day.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.
