The cost of poor quality control will be seen across the health care system with additional testing and longer stays for patients required in the hospital. By committing to a quality control system that emphasizes assessment and prevention, laboratories can significantly reduce failure costs. Applying cost of quality principles is a solution that helps labs to make fiscally sound decisions while maintaining high standards of quality.
Two strategies for reducing the cost of poor quality and reporting failure costs
1. Running reliable tests
2. Choosing your suppliers
While implementing more quality processes might seem like an unnecessary increase in costs, the subsequent reduction of high failure costs more than justifies the initial expenses. It takes some effort and financial investment to produce high quality services, but it is far more costly to deal with the failures that arise from neglecting quality.
