Table 5 Comparison of the advantages of the new method and manual verification

From: Development and implementation of an LIS-based validation system for autoverification toward zero defects in the automated reporting of laboratory test results

Advantages Difference Manual validation New method Explanation
Efficiency improvement Whether to add extra workload? YES NO No additional personnel are required to manually record the reason for the inconsistency. The new method is that the system completes judgment and records while personnel review the reports normally. The system will control the operation of the autoverification program based on the consistency results
  Can the cause of inconsistency be quickly determined? NO YES The main reasons for the inconsistency are abnormal rule settings and lack of necessary rules. The new method correspondingly sets up correctness verification and integrity validation for these two main reasons. In different verification stages, only the main reason for that stage can be traced back
Risk control Is it possible to skip the validation process? YES NO Starting from setting the rules, the system will pull the validation process, and no validation link can be skipped
  Whether to ensure sufficient amount of validation data? NO YES In the process of normal personnel issuance, the system will truthfully record the validation data. Before the set data volume is reached, the automated reporting function is prohibited
  Can autoverification be used in the case of failed validation? YES NO When the system confirms that the validation fails due to a defect in the autoverification, it will prohibit the rule conversion or the automated reporting from being enabled
