An economic model for clinical quality control
With increased focus on reducing costs in the healthcare industry, the economic aspects of quality control for clinical laboratories must be addressed. In order to evaluate the economic performance of statistical quality control approaches used in the clinical setting, an economic model is developed. Although the economic model is applied specifically to the clinical laboratory in this research, it is easily generalized for use in a wide variety of industry applications. Use of the economic model is illustrated through the comparison of traditional approaches to clinical quality control. Recommendations concerning the performance of the traditional approaches to clinical quality control are provided.
