College of American Pathologists (CAP’s) Laboratory Accreditation
MIOT’s Dept. of Lab Medicine becomes the First in Tamilnadu, to be Accredited by The College of American Pathologists(CAP) which includes its wide scope from Clinical pathology to Pathology to most complex Molecular diagnostics inclusive of entire gamut of HLA Testing
The Accreditation Committee of The College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to MIOT International Hospitals’ Department of Laboratory Medicine based on the results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
MIOT has achieved this because of the highest standard of care we provide to all our patients through our laboratory services, the quality control of procedures, the laboratory’s well-qualified team, equipment, facilities, safety programs and records, and overall management.
Our laboratory is now part of 8000+ CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
The College of American Pathologists
As the world’s largest organization of board-certified pathologists and leading provider of laboratory accreditation and proficiency testing programs, The College of American Pathologists (CAP) serves patients, pathologists, and the public by fostering and advocating excellence in the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine worldwide.
Sigma metric verification of performance
MIOT Hospitals becomes the 1st laboratory in India to achieve the Sigma Verification of Performance. MIOT has proved being a living example of a department showing great courage to “think out of the box ” by implementing Sigma across all phases of the laboratory testing process from the time of lab test billing to reporting of patient results.
The word Sigma is a “measure of reduction errors in a work process”. Sigma is a numerical grading system starting from 1 to 6 and above. “Higher the grade of Sigma, lesser the number of errors, which ultimately signifies better quality”. The Sigma concept was introduced into the world of industry in 1980 to improve quality and it became a dictum in industrial sector that when the quality of a product or a process reaches a Sigma score of “six” (SIX SIGMA), the product or process has reached “world-class quality “!! .
The idea behind implementation of Sigma in the field of Clinical Laboratory Medicine was conceptualised in early 2000 by Sir. James Westgard, considered as the ‘Father of Quality of Modern Laboratory Medicine’. The key objectives of this ideology was to bring in an order to objectively monitor, measure and reduce the errors in results reported by a Clinical Laboratory, since more than 70% of clinical decisions are made based on the Laboratory results.
Westgard Corporation initiated a sigma certification program in the USA for medical laboratories a decade back. Many medical testing laboratories from around the world have enrolled for this program and achieved Six Sigma certification from Westgard, except laboratories from India. The Department of Laboratory Medicine, MIOT Hospitals is the first in India to drive the noble initiative in implementing the concept of sigma in hospital practice and having succeeded in achieving Six Sigma certification from Westgard Corporation.
Implementation of sigma as a quality tool across all phases of testing in a clinical laboratory significantly helps to improve patients ‘ safety, by reducing the errors and improving the quality of results reported to patients.
The widespread fear in the minds of many clinical laboratories moving in the path of national accreditation bodies like National Accreditation Board for Medical Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) and international accreditation bodies like the College of American Pathologists (CAP) regarding the use of sigma in quality management shall be eradicated from their minds, since none of the accrediting bodies are against the use of quality tools like sigma or lean as a part of quality management system.
The Department of Laboratory Medicine, MIOT Hospitals has ultimately succeeded in becoming the first Indian laboratory to receive Westgard Six Sigma certification and implementing Sigma as part of laboratory practice across all phases of testing process for patient safety.
