Athlecon currently provides software, training, software support and
customization to clinical laboratories and diagnostic companies.
The company’s proprietary software, “QC-D™” (Daily QC), assesses individual
results from daily QC that is interactively linked to “QC-E™” (Expert QC)
through “QC-AL™” (Automated Link). It also provides a unique service to
collect, analyze and compare individual laboratory data immediately with a
world wide peer group at the touch of a button over the Internet. Our suite
of products converts statistical data to graphical information and provides
expert advice on appropriate action to maintain testing processes within
quality specifications. Essentially, computerized algorithms will monitor
performance indicators and signal appropriate action to the instrument
operator. This software suite will provide advancements in quality
management that are not available today. The ability to automate
much of the QC process and provide centralized consolidation of QC
performance will provide many advantages in efficiency and effectiveness
to clinical laboratories. The improvements in quality performance
and savings in time and consumables with our system are well documented.
The software is completely proprietary and uses several software
protection methodologies in addition to copyright protection.
THE BUSINESS CONCEPT
Athlecon Corporation provides niche products and services to simplify
statistical interpretation in quality management. We have developed
a suite of products to simplify quality management on a global scale and
provide a stand-alone software program, integrated to Laboratory
Information Systems (LIS) or diagnostic instruments and as a service on
the Internet. Athlecon’s unique software converts data to information and
uses standard and customized algorithms to recommend appropriate
Our first application “QC-D™” is used in the clinical laboratory market
to control the QC on the daily basis. “QC-E™” will show the performance of
each analytical method compared to its defined quality requirement,
highlight which methods need corrective action, and recommend processes to
maintain quality performance. In simpler terms for example, it shows
a lab if their cholesterol method is performing well enough to let a
doctor accurately prescribe the appropriate diet for his patient. “QC-E™”
provides medical laboratories significant cost and time saving while
delivering higher quality of laboratory testing procedures and results.
The software is internet-enabled and is the most comprehensive clinical
laboratory quality management system available today, with Internet links,
updates and benchmarking services. Our new suite of products will
maximize computer data-analysis and logical capabilities to virtually
automate the quality management process.
We believe that this same simplified approach to statistical
interpretation can be applied across every major industry sector.
Athlecon’s suite of expert information management programs will be used
wherever individuals, managers and corporations are using numerical data
to make decisions.
Our vision is to expand our business by creating a multi-industry
Internet Portal on the Internet. This will be a centralized quality
communication and expert resource centre. Through this portal Athlecon
will offer new software modules, new quality concepts, independent
bench-marking and provide total quality management on-line.
Athlecon is a technology company that develops and licenses software
platforms and educational products that increase understanding, reduce
costs, simplify management and improve outcomes in clinical
laboratories. Our short-term goal is to market the Athlecon QC Suite
of Products and Internet Services in the Clinical Diagnostic market.
Our long-term goal is to expand this simple graphical approach to quality
management and statistical assessment into several industry segments.
