With today’s focus on reducing medical errors, achieving and maintaining excellence is key to success. Using short-term studies, Q-PROBES provides a one-time comprehensive assessment of key processes in your laboratory.
Use Q-PROBES to help build and improve data collection and analysis processes
that contribute to quality of care, patient safety and outcomes.
Q-PROBES is an external peer-comparison program that addresses process-, outcome-, and structure-oriented quality assurance issues. Establish benchmarks through external database comparisons and compare your performance to establish laboratory goals and improve performance.
Since the launch of the Q-PROBES™ program in 1989, a summary of data from most Q-PROBES studies have been published in the Archives of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. In an effort to make this data more accessible, these articles based on past Q-PROBES studies have been categorized by the topics listed below. Articles resulting from Q-TRACKS® data (Q-PROBES studies that have been redesigned into longitudinal monitors) are also included within these categories.
Click on the topic link to access the related Q-PROBES or Q-TRACKS articles. Within each topic, the articles are organized by publication year.
