Who is this project intended for?
a. Laboratory professionals from large, small, specialized and general laboratories who attended the AACC BrownBag session “Evaluate acceptability of patient risk at monthly/regular QC review.”
b. Researchers, consultants, colleagues, and “QC keeners” invited by Zoe Brooks, M.O.R.E. Quality™ Consultants.
c. People who contact us through social media posts and would like to either participate or review the data for publication. <span style="color: #0000ff; text-decoration: underline;">email@example.com</span>
What can you do?
- quantify patient risk from medical laboratory ‘errors’ by submitting in your analytical & quality control processes
- validate your QC process against the ‘Prime Directive’ of Risk Management: “At the least, the ability of the QC procedures to detect medically allowable error should be evaluated."
- examine risk metrics of up to 300 analytical processes
- mainly for glucose, calcium and sodium
- evaluate the value of a NEW approach to quality management in terms of:
- the number of patients you can potentially save from risk and
- the associated clinical/legal savings
- based on your risk drivers
- participate in discussions and surveys on reports
- co-author, post and discuss results
Participate in the first Mini Risk Evaluation Program to examine:
- existing patient risk: as driven by analytical process quality relative to medical goals
- potential risk if the analytical process failed: as driven by statistical quality control process effectiveness relative to acceptable risk criteria
- potential benefits of Mathematically-OptimiZed Risk Evaluation™ as reduction of the acceptable/verified number and cost of errors
