As the Affordable Care Act dramatically changes medicine, one word is repeated often—efficiency. Patusa Mayfield, a lab director at Trinity Mother Frances Health System, is obsessed with it, and she sees a direct connection between the confidence in her laboratory’s clinical results and how lean and hyper-efficient her QC processes are. To maintain that balance, even as budgets decrease, she looks for ways to further streamline without sacrificing quality or throughput.

Patusa has relied on Thermo Scientific™ MAS™ QC controls for decades, and her goal is to streamline QC testing and reporting. On the testing side, Patusa's staff saves time and costs by running fewer controls (two instead of six), since her primary MAS controls can test for multiple analytes at once. Meanwhile, by using Thermo Scientific™LabLink xL in conjunction with MAS controls, the lab can automatically capture and organize data to simplify daily QC reporting: it now takes 15 minutes instead of 2 hours. While many labs wonder how they’ll answer the call for leaner, less-costly testing in this new era of medicine, Patusa’s lab has gone beyond routine and is ready for this change today. According to Patusa, "The more efficiently our lab can process QC results, the faster we can deliver quality lab results that physicians can use with confidence in diagnosis and treatment."
