Laboratory Testing Module
AutoQuality™ takes laboratory results quality to the next level, integrating controls and live patient results for a complete quality cycle.
Create your own rules based on Westgard rule families, apply for
quantitative and semi-quantitative results.
Validate a complete process by moving from internal QC to
harmonization, external QC program support and analyzing patient
Multiple filters and displays and numerous comparison methods
allow lab managers to isolate a problem source quickly.
Unparalleled flexibility in defining user rules, multiple control comparison and analysis methods and online interaction with the laboratory system enable laboratory managers to enforce a quality program to any desired level.
Integrating with the main laboratory module, AutoQuality™ offers laboratory personnel unsurpassed capabilities in ensuring laboratory results accuracy. This revolutionary product uses internationally recognized standards such as Westgard rules, as well as many new and unique features.
As AutoQuality™ is integrally connected with the laboratory system, QC (Quality Control) results are received automatically from the laboratory analyzers through the laboratory's internal network connection. The system's setup module enables easy definition of controls, batches and control channels based on the laboratory system's existing setup. In addition, QC failures show up as alerts and flags to the laboratory user, and are indicated on the relevant technician screens.
Create Your Own Rules
Unlimited control levels coupled with user-defined Westgard rules can be used to define alert or failure levels on quantitative and semi-quantitative results. As the system supports simultaneous use of current controls and new controls that are still in the testing phase, any desired testing can take place, including "what-if" changes to control constants.
High Level and Drill-down Review
QC monitoring has never been easier. Capturing the entire laboratory QC status at a glance with a color coded display grant the ability to drill down and view the instruments that interest you, the violated rules and failure points, with quick reference to history and Levy-Jenings and Cusum displays.
Multiple Graphs Displays
On top of complete support for all standard graphs such as Levy-Jenings, Cusum and Youden-Plot, the system further supports multiple graph views (cross control, cross analyzer, etc.) to enable easy comparisons. All graphs and data can be easily exported to MS Excel format for the user's convenience. A flexible documentation mechanism allows documentation of Levy-Jenings analysis, corrective actions, instruments status, or any desired comment category.
The QC integration with the laboratory module shines brightest when it comes to outcome research. Live results data can be analyzed online by test, analyzer, patient age and sex and time period to receive daily averages, medians and standard deviations alongside result distribution graphs.
Stopping Automatic and Manual Confirmation
Closing the loop on the laboratory module side, control channel statuses translate to appropriate flags stopping automatic confirmation and requiring specific authorization and comments for approval.
Additional QC Programs
Taking QC to the next level, AutoQuality™ supports harmonization programs to ensure intra-analyzer compatibility as well as external QC programs such as NEQAS, CAP, to enable the laboratory to compare its results with those of other laboratories.
Starting and closing the laboratory process, enabling numerous methods of research and analysis and supporting internal and external programs, AutoLims® QC module accurately addresses the needs of the modern laboratory manager. AutoManager™ makes sure that results that are not up to par will not leave the laboratory and empowers the laboratory professionals to easily research the source of any problems and take the appropriate corrective measures.
