UIHC Pathology Examination of Slides from Outside Facilities

A new protocol was developed to expedite the UIHC pathology examination of slides from outside facilities.  Protocol for Ordering Review of Outside Pathology Slides, AC-AMBP-AMB-22.102 is located on the ambulatory Web page.

For those patients who have a scheduled appointment (excluding Dermatology Clinic), the outside pathology department is instructed to mail pathology slides directly to the UIHC Anatomic Pathology Department.  Pathology clerical staff place the order to have the slides reviewed "per protocol", which eliminates the need for the slides to travel to the appropriate clinic for an order to be placed (average travel time of 1.2 days with average distance of 1.06 miles).
