5 June 2017 — QATrack+ Users Meeting at the 2017 COMP ASM

Thank you to Crystal Angers for organizing the first ever QATrack+ Community Meeting at the COMP ASM in July.

Crystal's announcement on the QATrack+ mailing list follows.

All users and developers of QATrack+ are invited to attend our first Community Meeting to be held at the COMP ASM on Friday July 14th from 2-3pm in the Provinces I room (COMP ASM on the web). Our goal is to facilitate a highly interactive group discussion so that we may learn how QATrack+ is being used (and further developed) across Canada.

Members of the Ottawa Hospital Cancer Center QATrack+ team will demonstrate the recently developed service log functionality and will seek feedback from the community in terms of facilitating implementation and use in other centers. We look forward to meeting and interacting with the growing QATrack+ community!

5 June 2017 — Ottawa Hospital & QATrack+ Awarded Funds from COMP-CNSC Innovation Fund

Congratulations to Crystal Angers of The Ottawa Hospital for her successfull application to the CNSC Innovation Fund. The award brings funding for further development of QATrack+ and new service log functionality.

Crystal's announcement on the QATrack+ mailing list follows.

I am very pleased to announce that QATrack+ has recently been awarded funds from the COMP-CNSC Innovation Fund. This money will enable the continued development of a service log (SL) upgrade for the QATrack+. Service log functionality will allow users to easily review previous service records and generate reports on the complete service history of equipment or measurement devices. Consolidation of service events with machine QC data will allow overlay on common timeline charts (for compliance reporting, or evaluation of sudden changes in performance). Funds will also be used to facilitate the implementation and use of QATrack+ in centers across Canada.

To find out more please click on the link below or attend our first meeting of the QATrack+ Community to be held at the COMP ASM on Friday July 14th from 2-3pm in the Provinces I room.

After more than two years since the release of v0.2.8, I am pleased to announce that version 0.2.9 is now ready for release. QATrack+ is now being used in many clinics spanning at least 10 countries around the world. I look forward to continue seeing the QATrack+ community grow!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this release either with code, bug reports or feature requests! Special thanks for this release go to Ryan Bottema who took over my position in Ottawa and has been instrumental in getting this release out the door. Thank you also to Zacharias Chalampalakis for contributing the code to make warning messages configurable. Finally thanks as always to Crystal Angers for both her support in testing and also working behind the scenes to ensure the future of QATrack+ is bright :)

There are lots of minor enhancements & a number of new features in this release of QATrack+. For more details and upgrade instructions please visit the full release notes on BitBucket.

Special thanks for this release go to Wenze van Klink from VU Medisch Centrum Amsterdam. Wenze contributed a couple of great features to QATrack+ for this release including:

  • The ability to easily copy references & tolerance from one Unit to another. A nice time saver!
  • The ability to set references and tolerances for multiple tests at the same time. Want to set 20 tests to have a reference value of 100? Now you can do it with just a few clicks.
  • Display uploaded images (jpg, png, gif) on the test list page.
  • a number of other bug fixes & minor features.
