Pixeon, partner of SBPC/ML and Controllab Laboratory Indicator Benchmarking Program

Laboratory Information Systems Developer (LIS) promoted in São Paulo a workshop organized in partnership with Controllab and SBPC/MLL

Having access to information that allows us to evaluate the organization in relation to the market and improve results is one of the objectives of the Laboratory Indicator Benchmarking Program (PBIL), conducted by the Brazilian Society of Clinical Pathology/Laboratory Medicine and Controllab. Already reducing the complexity of data collection and the possibility of errors to promote the reliability of information is the biggest gain of the partnership between the PBIL and companies developing Laboratory Information Systems (LIS).

One such company is Pixeon, a provider of solutions and technology for hospitals, clinics, imaging centers and laboratories, which in 2018 signed with SBPC/ML and Controllab a partnership to simplify data collection. Now, in 2019, Pixeon and other companies, which have been performing aligned actions ever since, were officially recognized as PBIL partners. “Access to information and the power to facilitate informed decision making is the greatest value our partnership makes possible,” says Armando Buchina, CEO of Pixeon. “PBIL is fully integrated with LIS, optimizing the time and resources involved in data collection, preventing typing errors and ensuring the security of information made available in real time.

So far, Pixeon has integrated 10 indicators. Since September 2019, all customers of the company’s Pleres SQL, Pleres.Net, Korus and Smart software have taken advantage of this integration. “But let’s not stop there,” Buchina says, adding that Pixeon is working on the development of more than 150 international standards-based indicators that address the organization’s diverse laboratory processes and management.

Partnerships between PBIL and software developers bring gains for everyone. On one hand, integration improves access to information, streamlines process and decision making for the laboratory. On the other hand, partner companies also contribute to the improvement of the program by participating in the Technical Advisory Group (GTA) of the SBPC/ML and Controllab Benchmarking Program and Laboratory Indicators.

“We often differentiate partner companies by making the program available in the Laboratory Information System of the laboratories,” explains Rafael Lopes, Controllab Services manager. “Companies that are only integrators take specific actions for certain customers who have made this request; partner companies promote and make program indicators available to all their users”.

PBIL was one of the subjects of the free workshop promoted by Pixeon, SBPC/ML and Controllab, in São Paulo, on December 2nd. The “Age of Data in the Laboratories” meeting provided an exchange of experiences among professionals in the face of challenges to improve performance. Besides Benchmarking, topics such as Cloud Solution and the General Data Protection Law were also discussed. “Pixeon is increasingly investing in quality content and relationship generation. The event we organize in partnership is the union of these two characteristics that we enjoy as a technology company” says Buchina.

Controllab and SBPC/ML are partners since 1977 and they created the Laboratory Indicator Benchmarking Program in 2006. The objective of the program is to increase the productivity by comparing results with those of other laboratories by setting targets and improvement of actions. In 2016, there was an increase in scope and a standardization of existing indicators, which allowed the comparison of data also internationally. The challenges that the laboratories face in collecting standardized information for SBPC/ML and Controllab in international forums have discussed the Indicator and Benchmarking Program. It was from this discussion that the collaboration with companies developing LIS was born.

PRM 0009

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Certified Reference Material Producer

Controllab has been accredited as a Certified Reference Material Producer (MRC) since 2016 by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE), under the PMR 0009 number. The assessment of this conformity is carried out according to the requirements established in ABNT NBR standards ISO 17034 and Inmetro, thus ensuring competence for the production of MRCs, according to the Scope of Accreditation.
Cgcre is signatory to the Mutual Recognition Arrangements of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and Interamerican Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC).

CAL 0214

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Calibration Laboratory

In December 2002, the Calibration Laboratory was accredited by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE). With this recognition, it became an integral part of the Brazilian network of accredited laboratories, under nº214. Since then, it is periodically evaluated for the maintenance and/or extension of accreditation.

PEP 0003

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Proficiency Test Provider

In September 2011, Controllab was accredited by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE) as a proficiency test provider, under nº PEP0003. Initially as part of a pilot project by Inmetro, this accreditation was based on ILAC G13: 2007 and included several clinical and hemotherapy tests. In the periodic evaluations of this accreditation, new segments and tests are included and the evaluation is now conducted according to ABNT NBR ISO/IEC 17043.

This accreditation attests to Controllab’s technical competence to develop and conduct proficiency tests in accordance with international requirements and enables it to be recognized in other countries, in accordance with mutual recognition agreements signed by Brazil in Mercosur, the Americas and Europe.
