Abstract

This paper presents a three phase methodology to automate quality control in healthcare clinical laboratory. The first phase consists in the automation of the performance assessment of the equipment in MS Excel. With the smart tools included in Excel, a macro was developed that not only saves the user time and makes the process more efficient, but also gives a clear idea of the quality of the test results. The second phase deals with the quality control management of the generated data through the application of manufacturing techniques; a code in Matlab was created that would allow the user to visualise the current performance of the equipment according to some specified limits in Statistical Process Control (SPC) charts. This enables the user to select the relevant information to visualise by analysing the control levels and dates. In the final phase a prediction algorithm applying data mining and machine learning techniques was developed, based on the historical data, which is used as a small sample of big data that could be potentially generated by the IoT enabled equipment interconnected via the internet enabling them to send and receive data. Using the K-Nearest Neighbour (KNN) classifier a performance accuracy of 94% was achieved which allows the user to predict future behaviour of the equipment.
