PT Take-away: Learn the new process for ordering your Serum Chemistry (CHEM) survey

By Editor on 8/19/2019

The release of the 2020 Proficiency Testing Programs included changes to the Chemistry survey. The new Serum Chemistry (CHEM) survey consists of analytes that were previously in the Routine Chemistry (CHEM), Drug Monitoring (DRUG), Enzymes and Bilirubin (ENZY), and Lipids (LIPS) surveys, except ethanol and tobramycin which have been removed from the program. The following new analytes have also been added: cholinesterase, CK-MB, fructosamine. Participants can now customize their surveys according to their laboratory’s test menus (serum chemistry only). Choose from a large variety of analytes and pick from several price categories that suit your laboratory’s needs.

Just released: 2019 Catalogue of IQMH Proficiency Testing Programs

By Editor on 9/27/2018

What's New in 2019?

  • New survey in the Chemistry program for Fecal Occult Blood — Fecal Immunochemical Test (CHEM-FIT)
  • The Fecal Immunochemical Test (CHEM-FIT) survey is specifically for immunochemical fecal occult blood testing. This survey will provide an external quality assessment of quantitative FIT results. Survey materials will provide concentration levels close to cut-off values used by these methodologies.
  • The Fecal Occult Blood (CHEM-FOB) survey was introduced in 2015 and will remain in the Chemistry program. Testing materials used in this survey are compatible with guaiac (gFOBT) and (FIT) methodologies. Participants can expect to submit qualitative results, such as: positive and negative.
  • Improvements to the Endocrinology program
  • To increase the stability of analytes in the survey material, the Endocrinology and Tumour Markers survey (ENDO) is now offered as two separate surveys — ENDO-A and ENDO-B.

PT Take-away: Participation in IQMH proficiency testing programs

By Editor on 10/28/2016

Proficiency testing is the determination of participant performance by means of inter-laboratory comparisons. The IQMH Proficiency Testing programs are designed to provide regular, objective and independent assessment of a participant’s ability to provide an acceptable standard of service by comparison with peers. Comparison of all results provides insight into performance that is not available to the individual participants.

PT Take-away: Planning IQMH proficiency testing surveys – an inside look

By Editor on 5/20/2016

Introduction

Proficiency testing should help laboratories optimize their performance. By participating in proficiency testing, laboratories receive data comparing their performance to peer groups using both similar and different methods. This information provides a retrospective review of performance and may identify opportunities for improvement. Therefore, proficiency testing is an essential element in laboratories’ quality management systems.

PT Take-away: Question from Ontario licensed laboratory participants about IQMH PT programs

By Editor on 11/7/2014

Question

Now that QMP-LS is IQMH, do Ontario licensed laboratories have to order PT programs?

Answer

No. Ontario-licensed laboratories will continue to receive surveys through the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC)-funded  program for their primary instrument and/or methodology. Survey registrations  will continue to be arranged according to the information that we receive from the Ontario MOHLTC, regarding laboratory’s scope of testing in their licence. Please do not place orders for your primary instrument or method. (See Testing for Multiple Instruments).
