Genetics Laboratory Dashboard

 

 

Dear Colleague,

Thank you for the feedback received regarding the review of the Medical Genetic dashboard categories. The Quality Subcommittee has reviewed all comments received from laboratories. Taking into account these comments and with the aims to simplify the collection of data via the dashboard and to harmonise turnaround times, the categories have been amended as per the attached document. We have submitted these recommendations to the CRG to be implemented from April 2015 and hope they will help to ease the submission of data to the dashboard.

Please note that the 3 day category will be measured in working days for the period April 2015 to March 2016 and then in calendar days from April 2016. Please see the reporting time targets for more details.

In order to ensure laboratories are submitting the same test results into the same categories, the ACGS Quality Subcommittee will perform a short audit to determine a consensus for each category. The outcome will be circulated to all laboratories in time for the 2015-16 Q1 data collection. Please find attached the audit collection spreadsheet and we invite you to complete the spreadsheet and email to Sandi Deans (Sandi.Deans@ed.ac.uk) by Friday 20th March, 2015.

With kind regards,

 Dr Sandi Deans

Chair

ACGS Quality Subcommittee
