"One Stop Facility for all your DIagnostic Needs"

Quality Assurance

NABH-MIS

Dr Doda’s centre has accreditation from National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers for  Medical Imaging services.(NABH-MIS), which is a constituent board of Quality Council of India.

Medical Imaging Services cover investigations of patients that provide imaging information for diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of disease; or assessment of health. It includes conventional radiation based diagnostic radiology as well as a wide variety of specialised techniques including Ultrasound scans, Doppler studies, Bone densitometry, CT, MRI.

All standard of services(statutory or otherwise)  at our centre meet the needs of all patient and the clinical personnel responsible for the care of patients. The services include arrangement for requisition, choice of appropriate (most informative and cost effective) imaging techniques, patient information, patient consent, patient preparation, patient identification, performance of imaging procedures, interpretation, reporting and advice regarding the result, in addition to the consideration of safety and ethics in diagnostic imaging services.

NABH certification is a Mark of excellence.As NABH Accredited centre we  adhere  to the set benchmarks and cater to the much desired needs of the patients with high quality of care and patient safety. The patients are provided services by credential medical staff. Rights of patients are respected and protected and patient satisfaction is regularly evaluated.

Accreditation of the centre  stimulates continuous improvement of the facilities. It has enabled us in demonstrating commitment to quality care and raised community confidence in the services provided by us. It has provided us the  opportunity to benchmark with the best.

 NABL

Dr Doda’s centre has accreditation from National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories for its Laboratory.(NABL), which is a constituent board of Quality Council of India and  is a  leading accreditation body  to provide  formal recognition of technical competence for specific tests.

 The laboratory accreditation services to testing and calibration laboratories are provided in accordance with ISO/ IEC 17025: 2005 ‘General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories’ and ISO 15189: 2012 ‘Medical laboratories — Requirements for quality and competence’. The accreditation to Proficiency testing providers is based on ISO/IEC 17043: 2010 “Conformity assessment — General requirements for proficiency testing” and to reference material producers based on ISO Guide 34:2009 “General requirements for the competence of reference material producers”.

Quality Control and Standardisation of  procedures in all aspects of Laboratory testing   is of prime  importance at  our centre for provision of quality results  in the interest of patient care. It covers all aspects of laboratory functioning i.e. pre-analytical, analytical and post-analytical, turnaround time, maintenance of equipment, selection of tests & reagents, standardization & validation of tests before they are introduced and training of personnel.

Proficiency Testing

Internal quality control (IQC) and external quality assessment (EQA), are referred to as proficiency testing. These are two distinct, yet complementary, components of a laboratory quality assurance program.

1. Internal quality control (IQC) is useful to detect, reduce and correct deficiencies in the laboratory`s analytical process prior to the release of patient results. Stringent practice of quality control helps our laboratory to achieve better performance goals. In addition to the daily routine, IQC material is run after an instrument is serviced, after reagents are changed, after calibration and when patient results seem inappropriate. Quality control data is interpreted by both graphical and statistical methods using the Levey Jennings(LJ) chart. The control values are plotted against their respective dates. The mean value and one, two and three standard deviation limits are also marked. The pattern of plotted points provides information of random error, shifts or trends in the control runs.

The internal quality control system helps in immediate intervention during the release of patients results. The laboratory personnel performing this exercise determines the appropriate corrective action to be taken for QC data that fall outside the tolerance limits.
The daily control values are documented along with calculation of % CV from the monthly quality control data and the control charts are maintained.

2. External Quality Assessment is used to identify the degree of agreement between our laboratory`s results and those obtained by others. EQAS provides information concerning the relative performance of analytical procedures, including the method principle, reagents, and instruments. Continued participation in EQA schemes has been linked to improvement in our  laboratory performance.

We are committed to perform EQA testing on regular basis to ensure the best quality of our services:
