BIG DATA – BIG OPPORTUNITY

 

“Big Data”, or combining enormous data sources with powerful analytics, is transforming multiple areas of healthcare. Big Data approaches are not easy to execute, and many hospitals report that they are not prepared. Laboratories and hospitals can derive value from data without using a large-scale Big Data approach. Integrating available data sources, such as laboratory data, combined with the right strategy, is a powerful way to drive performance throughout the organization.

SIX SIGMA-BASED QC

 

In the clinical lab it is standard practice to test quality control (QC) samples at least daily and, preferably, multiple times per day. Controls are necessary to ensure analytical systems are performing correctly and “fit for purpose” because the performance of even the best assays can change over time. Statistical quality control (SQC) practices have long been established for this purpose.

Dr. James Westgard has devoted his career to developing QC best practices and assessing analytical quality through tools such as the Sigma-metric. This learning guide presents his concepts, based on real working conditions in routine clinical labs.
