CQPath project aims to substantially improve the quality of pathological diagnosis by establishing a world-class set of references and a quality management approach for every pathology test.
By means of scientifically supported references for every test, the lab employee knows whether or not the test is sensitive and specific. And by daily quality monitoring, labs are able to fine-tune their process, and they are able to improve their performance and efficiency.
The project aims to work with experts in the field to improve and enhance the existing set of mainly immunohistochemistry (IHC) reference data. And in that way establish worldwide credibility and acceptance. IT tools will be used to provide easy and pervasive access to the data. By means of scientifically supported references for every test, the technician can find out whether or not the test is sensitive and specific. The quality management approach will require the lab to ensure daily monitoring resulting in more reliable results and higher efficiency.
