LABORATORY INFORMATICS

We do not require perfection but demand the pursuit of excellence …

LabAnswer Philosophy Statement

Quality at LabAnswer

In 2004, LabAnswer was awarded the Software Engineering Institute’s (SEI) maturity level rating of 3 on their Capability Maturity Model (CMM) which demonstrated our ability to consistently deliver on-time, on-budget and on scope informatics solutions to our clients. Our clients have not necessitated us to maintain this certification; however, we still work according to these standards and methodology. 

Project Management Methodology

In addition to our adherence to CMM standards, LabAnswer has also developed an Organizational Standard Project Management Methodology (OSPMM), based upon the Project Management Institute (PMI) body of knowledge model. Our approach relies heavily on clear oral and written communications, well documented customer requirements and expectations, and solid program plans, taking into account all phases of project management including Project Integration Management, Project Scope Management, Project Time Management, Project Cost Management, Project Quality Management, Project Human Resource Management, Project Communications Management, Project Risk Management, and Project Procurement Management.

Quality Assurance

Successful laboratory informatics implementations require solid planning and consistent project management. Every LabAnswer employee’s goal is to deliver uncompromising, personalized, professional services to all our clients. Our consultant team consists of qualified individuals who understand our clients’ needs and who recognize the importance of ensuring delivery of quality service to our clients. We provide quality assurance for every project at LabAnswer, ensuring that our processes, procedures, and methodology are utilized to produce consistent reliable results. Our managers continually solicit performance feedback through quarterly web surveys. Quarterly we personally review with each of our consultants metrics on how effective they are meeting the client’s objectives and their personal development plan.
