  1. Thanks Heather...I have the exact same email from the ATAG meeting. I just wish I could find some more concrete information.
  2. Signatures on Requisitions for Clinical Diagnostic Laboratory Tests In the November 29, 2010 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule final rule, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized its proposed policy to require a physician's or qualified nonphysician practitioner's (NPP) signature on requisitions for clinical diagnostic laboratory tests paid under the clinical laboratory fee schedule effective January 1, 2011. A requisition is the actual paperwork, such as a form, which is provided to a clinical diagnostic laboratory that identifies the test or tests to be performed for a patient. Although many physicians, NPPs, and clinical diagnostic laboratories may be aware of, and are able to comply with, this policy, CMS is concerned that some physicians, NPPs, and clinical diagnostic laboratories are not aware of, or do not understand, this policy. As such, CMS will focus in the first calendar quarter of 2011 on developing educational and outreach materials to educate those affected by this policy. As they become available, we will post this information on our website and use the other channels we have to communicate with providers to ensure this information is widely distributed. Once our first quarter of 2011 educational campaign is fully underway, CMS will expect requisitions to be signed. Source: http://www.cms.gov/ClinicalLabFeeSched/
  3. Hello, Is anyone aware of any specific regulation/FDA guidance that requires a donor center to retype donor antigens in order to include them in the unit's tie tag/label? Can historical antigens be included on the label if they have not been retyped with the current donation? (I know that it's a better business practice to confirm the type; just looking for any regulation that REQUIRES that retyping of donor antigensbe done by the donor center.) Thanks!
  4. We're looking for a new system now...just looking at our options, and someone in our IT dept. swore that Epic supported Transfusion Administration Verification at the bedside...I just can't find any information on it.
  5. Hello, Does anyone know if EPIC has a transfusion administration/positive patient ID system? Something used at the bedside to confirm that a unit of blood and a patient match up? Thanks!
