This course strives to bring caring people together to re-write the book on how to manage laboratory quality.    It is the public preview of what members are working on in the Mini Risk Evaluation Course.

This project will:

  1. research best practice to manage patient risk in medical laboratories;
  2. measure existing patient risk against regulated, evidence-based or clinical allowable error limits for calcium, glucose and sodium
  3. compare key features of existing and proposed statistical quality control processes;
  4. evaluate the ability of existing statistical quality control (SQC) processes and "Mathematically-OptimiZed™" SQC processes to
    1. meet best practice recommendations
    2. detect simulated method failure
  5. quantify potential reduction in:
    1. financial risk exposure from medical laboratory errors
    2. in-lab costs to perform quality control
