  1. Rapid accurate entry of microbiology results.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    - To develop techniques to improve efficiency and accuracy of data entry in microbiology, using a commercially available laboratory information system that is keystroke-intensive.

    Design

    - A combination of technologies, including bar-coded phrase sheets, keyboard macros, and bar-coded specimen labels, are used to automate the entry of commonly used keystroke sequences and combinations of culture findings.

    Setting

    - An acute care hospital laboratory.

    Participants

    - Laboratory technologists.

    Outcome measures

    - Feasibility, report error rates, and technologist time.

    Results

    - Qualitative : implementation of all three technologies proved feasible and practical.

    Quantitative : a 25-fold decrease in misreported cultures, as well as a 50% savings in reading time for new urine cultures.

    Conclusions

    - This set of technologies for keystroke reduction would be of general applicability to laboratories with a variety of different laboratory information systems.
