All test results are presented in a measurement report providing valuable details and visual feedback about the quality of the endoscope.
Endoscope measurement reporting including visual feedback
ScopeControl stores all endoscope measurement details for later use in defect and repair reports, bus also dedicated management and quality reporting. The ScopeControls snapshot feature stores pictures made during the endoscope measurement for visual feedback to support evaluation and reporting. By using the collected test and measurement details, information about the performance of the endoscopes under test can be monitored to present history and trend analyses.
All the endoscope measurement and test results are stored in a database for reporting purpose. The reporting engine is designed to build and run reports based on pre-set filters and selections, presenting the details required for dedicated test and measurement reporting. Also history reports and management reports can be generated to secure quality management. Reports can be viewed on pc-screens or exported to various formats to be used in documentation.
Added to the fully automated tests is a feature called Snapshot. Snapshot takes photos during the endoscope measurement to present the defects in the rod lenses. This provides visual feedback to the ScopeControl operators that can be used during management reporting. The snapshots from a previous endoscope measurement can be used for specific quality evaluations. For repair and replacement reporting, snapshot provides confirmation about the defects and affected quality.
Powerful reporting engine to customise management reports and endoscope measurement snapshots for visual feedback.
With ScopeControl we get to grips with quality management to become compliant with the covenant on safety when using medical technology in our hospital.
This is really the first objective measuring method and results are stored automatically. This helps us to secure procedures conform the MIC committee (minimal invasive surgery) guidelines, says Guido Kortleven, head of medical instruments and control. It reduces costs and is the best tool to avoid defect endoscopes entering the operating theatre.
We have selected ScopeControl to secure the brand-agnostic testing of endoscopes, for its automated testing and reporting.
“The reasons are simple”, says Jan Wilterdink. “For the first time it becomes possible to check and control the quality process of endoscopes. Objective measurements result in improved work processes and high standards for the instruments used during the operations. This is what we need. We like to improve our service from the CSSD to our customer the Operating theatre.”
