OTIS-Laboratory 9

Experts estimate that up to 70 percent of medical decisions are based on laboratory results. Bearing in mind that to err is certainly human, deviations and errors in the laboratory are responsible for millions if not billions of dollars of unnecessary medical costs, not to mention the human costs of erroneous, needless or ineffective treatment. 

It doesn’t have to be so. We can, and do, learn from our mistakes.

For the past several years, an easy-to-use software solution has been helping quality-conscious pathologists and other laboratory professionals use imperfection to drive perfection by tracking and trending nonconforming events (NCEs) and transforming deviations into performance-improving gold.

Designed in collaboration with a QA expert at a Top 50 hospital, OTIS®-Laboratory 9 is an intuitive yet powerful incident management system* that enables you to:

  • oversee quality issues;
  • target process improvement efforts to reduce errors, optimize productivity and maximize revenue; and
  • meet and/or exceed regulatory, accreditation and other requirements of such organizations as the College of American Pathologists (CAP), as well as the FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Guidelines.

Use OTIS-Laboratory to:

  • create visual views of trends with just one click—i.e., “one-click trending”;
