Design and evaluation of a LIS-based autoverification system for coagulation assays in a core clinical laboratory

In this 2019 paper published in BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, Wang et al. of China Medical University demonstrate the results of an attempt to add autoverification mechanisms for coagulation assays into their laboratory information systems (LIS) to better improve both operations and patient care. After providing background on coagulation assays and autoverification guidelines, the researchers describe their methodology for programmatically developing autoverification decisions rules and implementing them into their laboratory workflow. Additionally, they discuss how best assess validation of the new system and its results. The authors conclude that not only has the new system improved turnaround time in the lab, but it also has improved the level of medical safety in its diagnoses in the affiliated hospitals.
