In a modern hospital biochemical laboratory the efficiency and quality of the analysis result production process are fundamental. With respect to quality, an important step of the process is validation: medical experts control the analysis result reports in order to verify that no error has occurred during their production. We describe the DN-SEV system, an Expert System developed in order to improve the quality of the validation process performed by a specific Laboratory Information System, called ITALAB C/S, used in the laboratories of most Italian hospitals. Objectives achieved by DNSev are: analysis result validation support, help for laboratory automation, clarity, flexibility, reliability and cost reduction.

Abstract

In a modern hospital biochemical laboratory the efficiency and quality of the analysis result production process are fundamental. With respect to quality, an important step of the process is validation: medical experts control the analysis result reports in order to verify that no error has occurred during their production. We describe the DN-SEV system, an Expert System developed in order to improve the quality of the validation process performed by a specific Laboratory Information System, called ITALAB C/S, used in the laboratories of most Italian hospitals. Objectives achieved by DNSev are: analysis result validation support, help for laboratory automation, clarity, flexibility, reliability and cost reduction. In the paper we describe in details DNSev architecture and features. We also describe test results and future works.
