An exclusive Westgard Zoom for Sigma VP laboratories!
Since the dawn of the modern laboratory age, QC has been run on a schedule built on the foundation of arbitrary time, not science. We have run QC for compliance, not for patients. We have run QC as a routine, not as a way to reduce risk.
That era is ending. A new era, where minimizing patient risk drives the frequency of running controls, is upon us.
Dr. James O. Westgard will review the new tools, calculations, and implications of Patient-driven QC.
