Reporting

Results are sent via mail, fax or our online reporting portal. We are also able to interface with our client’s electronic medical record(EMR) system. We work with our clients to deliver results in the manner that will work best for them.

PCS also provides a monthly report to each account that lists patients by result along with helpful statistics, such as numbers of preparations with and without endocervical cells and percentages of satisfactory and unsatisfactory cases. These statistics serve as a check and balance system for us as well as the physician’s office.

  • Accuracy verification by a supervisory cytotechnologist and a pathologist for all abnormal reports.
  • Unsatisfactory cases are reviewed twice before results will be reported.
  • Pathologists review all cases determined reactive, atypical, premalignant or malignant.
  • Notification via phone to clinician’s office for any cases deemed “significant” findings (i.e. cancer)
  • A copy of the method of reporting, which can help further explain the cytologic findings (upon request only)

PCS utilizes the Bethesda System for reporting. For additional information on our Bethesda reporting policies and procedures, please click here
