Quality Control

That ATS 1994 Update recommends that spirometry data collection programs be subject to a Quality Control review program to insure the continued collection of valid data. The program requires a sample of spirometry records be sent to Palmer Associates Inc. Overread Center on a quarterly basis for review and evaluation. Consistent procedural errors that invalidate the data can be identified with corrective measures given to that technician. A performance report is sent to each person submitting records. Summary performance records by person and by site are submitted to management. Companies using this service have improved their data quality Success Rates significantly (78.3% to 95.6%).
Steps Required To Implement A Quality Control Program

Equipment Selection

Because of confusing claims and counter claims from equipment manufacturers, it is difficult to make an intelligent selection of appropriate equipment for your corporate needs. PA’s advisory service cuts through this fog and provides specific recommendations that are geared to your medical and risk management goals and budgets. Selections are carefully screened to insure they meet Dept. of Labor Law (OSHA) performance specifications. PA is not in the business of selling equipment, so remains unbiased in these assessments.
