ISO 15189 software
Ensure and evidence quality and competence in medical laboratories with ISO 15189 software.
What is ISO 15189?
ISO 15189 is the international standard for medical laboratories, specifying the standards for quality and competence to ensure that everything comes together to facilitate accurate and effective diagnosis for every patient.
Why ISO 15189?
ISO 15189 has been highlighted by the government as a priority for medical laboratories to comply with to modernise laboratory practices. The standard is important as it upholds patient safety at its core, ensuring that these vital services are available when needed and produce results to a consistent, high standard.
"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."
