Put True and Acceptable Risk in Policy

Laboratory directors globally are striving to meet the criteria of ISO 15189-2012 and CLSI EP 23A.   Join the Scientific Advisory Board http://rmw.awesomenumbers.org/scientificadvisoryboard to follow the first ‘trailblazers’ through the process of Mathematically-OptimiZed Risk Evaluation©.  Validate your own QC processes and lead others to improve patient care and save clinical cost.  The other benefit is that setting these five values and adopting these processes will make your life SO MUCH easier and let you sleep well at night!  

The steps you need to follow are spelled out remarkably clearly.  The goal is “automated selection and reporting of results process by which patient examination results are sent to the laboratory information system and compared with laboratory-defined acceptance criteria, and in which results that fall within the defined criteria are automatically included in patient report formats without any additional intervention.”

When the QC sample is proven to reflect patient samples, and the medical director sets these five values, the required facts can be gathered from the instrument or LIS and the entire QC process automated as required.  Beware however … you cannot manage cost with sigma.

When you join, you will receive a series of emails and be enrolled in a free online course.  Our sole objective is to improve patient care.
