Abstract

A system is described for monitoring the efficacy of clinical laboratory tests. A combination of electronic data retrieval and manual retrospective review of medical records were used to collect information on patient diagnoses and therapeutic responses. These medical databases provide an effective method for monitoring the performance of current tests and evaluating the impact of novel procedures. They also provide a quality assurance monitor for assessing the clinical utilization of the tests and provide a reference base for developing methods for interpretative reporting of test results.
