1 How To Interpret CAP Proficiency Testing Evaluations Elaine Staley, MT(ASCP) Compliance Officer St. Lukes Hospital – Mayo Clinic Jacksonville

2 Objectives Identify performance issues by evaluating data provided on the PT evaluation and Participant Summary List investigational techniques for responding to Proficiency Testing Exception Summary (PTES) Assemble a quarterly review of PT scores by using the All Analyte Scorecard

3 e-Lab Solutions The best way to view CAP evaluations is to use e-Lab Solutions Request access from your institutions administrator Request access from your institutions administrator

4 CAP Evaluations 101 Printed Evaluation Exception Codes Exception Codes Interactive Evaluation Participant Summary

5 CAP Evaluation What Should You Review? Evaluate each analyte and specimen for negative/positive bias, trends or shifts Evaluate ungraded challenges If an evaluation criteria is not listed in the Participant Summary you can use information provided by manufacturer or use Rhoads If an evaluation criteria is not listed in the Participant Summary you can use information provided by manufacturer or use Rhoads

6 Education Challenges Code 26 POC Phase IIN/A YES NO Is there evidence of evaluation and, if indicated, corrective action in response to "unacceptable" results on the proficiency testing reports and results of the alternative performance assessment system? NOTE: The evaluation must document the specific reason(s) for the "unacceptable" result(s) and actions taken to reduce the likelihood of recurrence. This must be done within one month after the POCT program receives its evaluation. In addition, each ungraded challenge, each educational challenge, and each episode of nonparticipation must be reviewed and corrective action instituted as appropriate.

15 Proficiency Testing Exception Summary (PTES) Unsatisfactory PT performance Failure to attain the minimum satisfactory score for an analyte, test, subspecialty, or specialty for a testing event. Failure to attain the minimum satisfactory score for an analyte, test, subspecialty, or specialty for a testing event. Unsuccessful PT performance (2 of 3 testing events) Failure to attain the minimum satisfactory score for an analyte, test, subspecialty, or specialty for two consecutive or two of three consecutive testing events. Failure to attain the minimum satisfactory score for an analyte, test, subspecialty, or specialty for two consecutive or two of three consecutive testing events. Critical PT performance (3 of 4 testing events) Failure to attain the minimum satisfactory score for an analyte, test, subspecialty, or specialty for three consecutive or three of four consecutive testing events. A laboratory must immediately cease testing for that analyte or the discipline. Failure to attain the minimum satisfactory score for an analyte, test, subspecialty, or specialty for three consecutive or three of four consecutive testing events. A laboratory must immediately cease testing for that analyte or the discipline.
