Title of Guideline to Be Developed: Autoverification of Clinical Laboratory Results for X (X represents each discipline that the guidelines will address.)
Due Date: December 27, 2013
Description: This guideline will provide discipline-specific requirements and acceptable criteria for autoverification. It is intended to increase the adoption rate for the vast majority of laboratories that have not implemented autoverification across their laboratories and/or have reached moderate levels of verification. It will also provide information related to vendors that could provide laboratorians with packages or compliant systems to achieve the guidelines set by CLSI. The guideline will apply to manual or automated verification systems, as well as those that are a combination of the two. It will establish the minimum base level of algorithms required for autoverification. It is intended to provide an iterative process that allows levels of adaptation from minimum criteria to more complex criteria.
