PT Take-Away: How do I upload files to QView™?

By Editor on 4/23/2019

As a participant in an IQMH Centre for Proficiency Testing (PT) program, you may be asked to submit documents to IQMH related to your participation in a PT survey or as part of a discordant findings’ investigation (DFI) including any follow-up information.

Please note: you must be an authorized QView user to upload a document into your own site’s folder.

Instructions for uploading and naming the files are summarized below:

  1. To begin a file upload, click on Documents in the menu bar to take you to the Documents section.

  2. On the left-hand sidebar there is a menu with IQMH Documents. Under your site-specific PT Survey folders, locate the appropriate survey discipline. For example, if you are uploading documents for an Endocrinology survey, open the Chemistry folder. Each discipline will have a specific folder for Correspondence. This folder is used to upload any DFI information or responses to IQMH memos. Open the Correspondence folder and navigate to the appropriate year. On the green top ribbon, click the “upload” button.

    Some surveys require the submission of supporting documentation in addition to the analysis worksheet, e.g. GENE. These documents are uploaded into the “Site 0000 GENE” folder in the appropriate survey subfolder. Specific instructions are on the analysis worksheet.

  3. A box will pop up for you to select your files; click Browse to locate your file(s). You may upload several files; as you browse and locate them they will be listed. Click Upload to complete the process. Files may be added and removed, if necessary.

  4. Use the following file naming format when uploading files to QView:

    Discordant Finding – Survey No Lab No – yyyy mm dd – Type of file.


    Discordant Finding – ENDO 1902 Lab 0902 – 2019 03 15 – Precision Study

Detailed instructions can be found in “Chapter 7 – Uploading files to QView™” in the PT Guide to QView™.
