We are excited to share that Orchard® Harvest™ is now compatible with the College of American Pathologists (CAP) proficiency testing program. This means that you can configure CAP proficiency testing (PT) samples, and when testing is complete, you can export the results via data browser for upload directly to CAP. Uploading this report automatically populates your online result form.

Upload of PT Results Reduces Likelihood of Errors
As you may be aware, we have had this functionality for the American Proficiency Institute (API) for quite some time. By adding the CAP proficiency testing program, you can now upload the majority (if not all) of your proficiency testing. By automating and standardizing this process, your lab reduces the likelihood of transcription errors and saves time spent manually entering the results. In addition, for inspection purposes, you can easily demonstrate that your PT samples were run just like your patients are to meet CLIA requirements.

One-time Setup Instructions
To get started, we have step-by-step instructions available to help you configure your lab’s system for CAP proficiency testing: Setting Up Harvest for CAP Proficiency Export.

As always, our goal is to continue developing software functionality that makes laboratory professionals’ jobs easier and more efficient. We appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to support@orchardsoft.com or (800) 571-5835 if you have any questions.
