The Paperless IVF Lab of the Future Uses ART Compass

Using Module 2: ART Compass Document Control System

Formal document control is a best practice for IVF labs and required by accreditors like CAP.

  • Documents are created in ART Compass, and given a version number. These could be policies, procedures, recording forms for quality assurance and control, and patient procedure records. 
  • Documents can be updated per regulatory changes, procedure changes, and as needed. 
  • All new staff members must read all policies and procedures and sign off on them. 
  • Labs must demonstrate that everyone is using the most current form, and archive but keep a record of forms no longer in use. 
  • Annually forms should be reviewed and updated, the scope of changes needs to be commented on (minor edits, addition of paragraph, re-written, added, taken away etc). 
  • With any document change “sign off” i.e. acknowledgement should occur by all staff, lab director, and MDs.

We provide a complete document control system. 

  • Create any form
  • Require sign offs
  • Assign to and display on a per technologist basis
  • Assign to patients or specific patient cycles
  • Copy and Edit, Version Number, and Archive functions.
