Starting in January 2019, IQMH will be implementing the new WarmMark® Short run temperature monitoring strips for Proficiency Testing surveys that require temperature monitoring.
At IQMH we’re fortunate to have a dedicated and creative team of staff volunteers who participate in the IQMH Quality Team, set yearly objectives for their work and systematically go about meeting them.
The Quality Team is a Corporate Committee that reports to the Management Group and is comprised of representatives from:
Our goal with this two-day in-class course is to tie together cause analysis processes that may be disparate in some organizations or confusing to some individuals. For example, many laboratories have distinctly separate processes for proficiency testing discordant findings, accreditation findings, safety incidents, complaints and patient occurrences/near misses. This seminar will tie these together and link them to one fundamental approach so that cause analysis is done systematically, consistently, completely and ultimately leads to improvements and mitigation of risk. Delivery techniques utilize real examples to illustrate the concepts presented, combined with case studies that allow the participants to apply the skills learned.
The latest QView™ Web update brings with it the ability to modify Proficiency Testing Method Codes right from the Analysis Worksheet! You may still use the dedicated Method Code Maintenance screen; however, the methods may be adjusted in a faster, easier and convenient way, right on the worksheet, without the need of another screen to distract you. And, as a bonus feature, the changes will be shown immediately on the form itself (pending Consultant Technologist review and approval).
On November 30th, IQMH bid farewell to Shelly Rowe, Supervisor, Information Services. Shelly joined our small dedicated Information Services team in 2000 and has been an integral part of our evolution from LPTP to QMP–LS to IQMH. She has also played an important role in the technological transformations in the way we deliver our services.
The scope of the ISO/TC 212 technical committee involves standardization and guidance in the field of laboratory medicine and in vitro diagnostic test systems. The TC is futher subdivided into five working groups:
Working Group 1: Quality and competence in the medical laboratory
Working Group 2: Reference systems
Working Group 3: In vitro diagnostic products
Working Group 4: Microbiology and molecular diagnostics
Working Group 5: Laboratory Biorisk management
In preparation for the 2019 year, the Centre for Proficiency Testing would like to remind program participants that you are in control of your QView™ account. If you are a QView™ account holder, you can manage your displayed name, email address, password and email subscriptions in your profile settings.
