Mini Risk Evaluation Programs are opportunities for groups of laboratory professionals, quality/risk managers and patient advocates to examine:

  1. existing patient risk: as driven by analytical process quality relative to medical goals
  2. potential risk if the analytical process failed: as driven by statistical quality control process effectiveness relative to acceptable risk criteria
  3. potential benefits of Mathematically-OptimiZed Risk Evaluation™ as reduction of the acceptable/verified number and cost of errors


This course flows from the Invitational Webinar: the Original Risk Evaluation Comparison
an interactive online event that offers you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to:

  1. quantify patient risk from medical laboratory ‘errors’ by submitting in your analytical & quality control processes
  2. 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." 
  3. examine risk metrics of up to 300 analytical processes
    1. mainly for glucose, calcium and sodium
  4. evaluate the value of a NEW approach to quality management in terms of:
    1. the number of patients you can potentially save from risk and
    2. the associated clinical/legal savings
    3. based on your risk drivers
  5. participate in discussions and surveys on reports
  6. co-author, post and discuss results
