Laboratory Reports

Reducing documents tampering and improving automation

With the proliferation of laboratories and the liberal use of the franchise model to expand the operations of regional and national chains, the need to verify the authenticity of a lab report has increased. We frequently hear about cases where the collected sample is not sent for actual testing but and instead a false report is generated and money collected from unsuspecting customers. This has serious implications as it can result in improper diagnosis, inadequate or expensive insurance and is a reputation risk for the genuine laboratories. It is however very simple to tackle this problem by making sure that all genuine reports are system - generated centrally and can be validated by anyone in a simple manner to verify the authenticity and even the contents. Qryptal can help to capture the data on the patient’s report in the form of a QR code before it gets printed either physically or electronically. In addition, the QR code will also have the digital signature of the issuing laboratory so that an imposter or rogue franchise cannot create a fake or tampered copy. This can be then validated by the customer or their doctor or even the insurance company and the verified contents can be used for diagnosis, prescription and/or insurance.

This is how the report generation process and the sample report looks like

Using a Qryptal QR code for a laboratory report has several benefits

  • - Works for both printed and electronic documents

  • - There is no URL hence no phishing attacks
  • - Easy to integrate with existing document generation systems
  • - Makes the document tamperproof and easily verifiable using a dedicated app
  • - Very good for security and privacy. The information is shared on a need to know basis and with implied consent of the document holder (customer)
  • - Only the issuing organisation can generate the QR code with the digital signature
  • - The entire information is inside the QR code hence no need for network connectivity to check and verify the contents.
