Do I have the ability to export data from Performance Analytics Dashboard reports?
Yes. You have the ability to export data to Excel, in addition to other file formats, so you have the freedom to work with your data as you see fit.
How soon will data from an inspection be available on the dashboard?
Inspection data is available the morning after the CAP completes data entry of an inspector's report. Responses to deficiencies will be available the morning after the CAP enters a laboratory's response(s).
Does the dashboard include all graded PT or just CMS-regulated analytes?
The dashboard includes all graded analytes.
Will the CAP still offer CAP LINKS reports?
No, the Performance Analytics Dashboard replaced the CAP LINKS reports. With the Performance Analytics Dashboard, it is no longer be necessary to wait for a quarterly summary, as information will be posted to the dashboard on a daily basis and may be accessed at your convenience.
CAP LINKS reports mailed in April 2016 were the last reports published by the CAP.
Will the CAP still mail evaluations and participant summary reports?
Yes, you will continue to receive evaluations and participant summary reports via mail.
Will the laboratory or system administrator receive email notifications in the event that a laboratory has a "failing" proficiency test?
We know this alert functionality is important and will be considered for future enhancements.
Can I add or change my demographic group classification?
Yes, you may change your demographic group classification. Complete and submit the Laboratory Demographic Groups form located within the dashboard's help. With the new dashboard, you can easily see how your performance compares to your peers.
Accredited laboratories may also use the online Laboratory Data Maintenance or Accreditation Application tools in the e-LAB Solutions Suite.
