Abstract:

This report presents the findings of the evaluation of the Air Force Clinical Laboratory Automation System AFCLAS being used at the USAF Medical Center, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio MCWP. The evaluation at MCWP is the first part of a two-part study that is also evaluating AFCLAS at another site, the Malcolm Grow USAF Medical Center at Andrews AFB, Maryland MGMC. The purpose of the evaluation is to assess the impact of AFCLAS on the operation and management of a clinical laboratory and on users and beneficiaries of laboratory results outside the clinical laboratory. The results of the evaluation are intended to aid those who must decide whether the AFCLAS system should be introduced at other Air Force medical centers and whether it should be continued or terminated where already installed. The report of the evaluation performed at MCWP has been prepared in two volumes, of which this volume Analysis is the second. It provides the detailed analysis to support the findings presented in Volume I Summary.
