What is ISO 15189 and why is it so important?
ISO 15189 is the international standard for medical laboratories, specifying the standards for quality and competence. It is a globally recognized accreditation that demonstrates your commitment to the reliability, competence, integrity, and overall quality of your lab’s practices.
Additionally, as labs all over the world increasingly look to standardize their practices to enable better data sharing and more informed decision-making, many see ISO accreditation as a vital step towards globally consistent data.
Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust
Experienced users of Q-Pulse since 2004, Ideagen software is vital to Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust’s Pathology department. It has helped the trust and its hard-working staff to simplify the tasks associated with its compliance efforts. This includes achieving and maintaining compliance to ISO 15189 and meeting strict criteria from regulatory bodies such as MHRA, HTA, CQC, and HSE. Ideagen also provided a validation pack through their partnership with CompliancePath, greatly reducing the time taken to validate the system unguided.
The main benefit from the pack was the huge savings in time which would have been spent validating the system ourselves. We also saved on associated staffing costs that would have been incurred, which is often forgotten about.
