EIQ Features Used

The Challenge:
Manual Lab Testing Procedures for Critical Care Devices

The client needed to grapple with labor-intensive, paper-based lab testing procedures that hampered their efficiency and introduced the potential for errors. These manual processes not only slowed down their pre-release testing but also posed a significant challenge in maintaining accuracy and traceability.

Our Solution:
Automated Lab Test Selection and Execution

The EIQ Platform emerged as a pivotal tool in the automation of the client’s lab testing procedures. One of the critical components of this was an automated, web-based solution that played a vital role in guiding and sequencing the selection and execution of lab tests, ensuring that they align seamlessly with the healthcare provider’s business logic and standard operating procedures (SOPs). Another aspect of this transformation involved the integration of a Rule Builder. This tool empowered the client to design and implement the specific business rules necessary for each lab testing process step, increasing accuracy and efficiency.

Online forms were introduced to capture test data, which was securely stored on a cloud-hosted database. These processes were further enhanced by including approval protocols for lab technicians and other staff, ensuring data security and integrity. The solution also enabled the automatic compilation of final reports. These reports were distributed to management and regulatory bodies and accompanied by analytics of trends in lab testing data, providing valuable insights for informed decision-making.

We worked closely with the client to address the challenge of historical data. The EIQ Platform was employed to digitize and manage historical reports, spanning approximately a decade of records. This digitization process effectively created a “system of record,” ensuring accessibility and security.
