In our Part 1 of this blog series, we discussed the changes we are anticipating in the centralized testing model for COVID-19. There are some changes in store for the COVID-19 diagnostics market driven by the increase in the number of recent authorizations by the FDA for point-of-care (and point of need) testing.
A new case study has been released describing how CaroMont Health is using the Matrix Mortuary Management System from Autoscribe Informatics to manage its hospital morgue. The system is now in daily use at CaroMont Regional Medical Center.
A lab’s informatics system is critical for its effective operation. As labs develop new tests and ramp up throughput, a robust informatics system becomes increasingly necessary. In a highly regulated environment where reproducibility and accuracy are of utmost importance, paper isn’t a good option for tracking sensitive data. [Read More]
In this 2021 paper published in BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, Jin et al. discuss an autoverification and validation system they implemented in their laboratory information systems (LIS) to decrease validation workloads and reduce reporting risks in their healthcare systems. Using a human-machine dialog approach, the authors developed and implemented their autoverification system so that it could record personnel review steps and determine whether the human–machine review results are consistent, while also allowing laboratory personnel to tweak the system further for improved autoverification accuracy. After describing their system in detail, the authors present the results of their two years of use with the system, noting that "in the two years that our online validation has been in use, there have never been any defects or reporting risks due to autoverification" while at the same time enjoying more efficient laboratory verification.
