Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9960410A1] A method and apparatus for providing background surveillance and detection of unsuspected aberrant clinical information. The capability of selecting to receive test results for a patient from one or more tests of a plurality of tests is provided, as well as the ability to receive test results that were originally not desired, but only on the condition that the undesired test results meet a predetermined threshold value, thus indicating an aberrant condition with the patient which must be addressed. As such, the amount of extraneous information which must be considered by the physician is minimized, resulting in a savings of time and money which would have been spent unnecessarily. The method and apparatus applies to a single test or to continuous testing of a patient. The method and apparatus are further useful as a quality control measurement tool.
