General presentation Objective To set up an intelligent system for the autoverification of patients reports capable of improving the safety, reproducibility, quality and speed of rendering of test results to the patient. Used like a filter, the Valab system picks out and highlights the non-validated reports for which the intervention of the clinical scientist brings real biological and/or medical added value before authorisation is given for release of the results. Moreover, in the context of a multi-site medical laboratory, Valab allows to harmonise and monitor the practice of biological validation...

Autoverification principle (cognitive model) The expert system approach The construction of human reasoning and the ensuing behavior are the result of a set of conscious (knowledge) and unconscious (experience) elementary intellectual processes. The development of an expert system consists in: revealing the set of elementary processes building a model capable of exploiting these processes validating the generated autoverification Principle The "intelligent" model which Valab is based upon takes into account all the processes involved in the interpretation of a result according to a strategy that...

www.valab.com Trigger all the rules applicable to the situation previously analysed Without anteriority correlation rules (lower or higher trend) With anteriority anteriority rules (lower or higher trend) Each set of rules comprises on the one hand positive rules which allow the validation of (normally) abnormal results and on the other hand negative rules which prevent the validation of (abnormally) normal results. Establish a summary of the acceptability of the result not valid for "Panic value" Results Meaning (V): This normal or pathological result, with or without anteriority, is validated...

www.valab.com Intelligence of the system The intelligence of the system for "Anteriority" consists in its capacity to validate a large variation (greater than the RCV) if this variation is consistent with the other available data, but to block a slight or nil variation (less than the RCV) if this is incompatible with the variations observed for the other tests. The intelligence of the system for "Correlation" consists in its capacity to validate a pathological result if this result is consistent with the other data (normally abnormal), but to block a normal result if it is incompatible with other...
