Process analysis in laboratory analytics

Process analysis in laboratory analytics typically involves three phases, ranging from laboratory request to findings, and must be coordinated across care boundaries.

The optimal design of a comprehensive process analysis requires careful coordination between the professional groups involved across the boundaries of care. This is the only way to ensure efficient and high-quality analysis and reporting.

1

Indication-specific laboratory requirement

In the first phase, the indication-specific laboratory request, the requirements for the laboratory examination are defined. Various factors must be taken into account, such as the medical indication, the desired parameters and the timeframes for the analysis. Precise and unambiguous formulation of the requirements is crucial here in order to perform an efficient and accurate analysis.

Laboratory Analytics and automation

In the second phase, laboratory analysis and automation, the analysis itself is carried out. Here, it is important that all steps in the analysis process are precisely defined and standardized to ensure high reproducibility and accuracy of the results. Automation is also playing an increasingly important role in making the analysis more efficient and less prone to errors.

Quality assured AI-supported reporting

In the third phase, quality-assured AI-assisted reporting, the report is created on the basis of the analysis results.Here, artificial intelligence (AI) and algorithms can be used to make the reporting faster and more accurate.However, it is important that the AI systems are regularly validated and checked for their performance to ensure high quality and safety of the results.
