MediaLab’s Document Control is a powerful way to manage your laboratory’s policies, procedures, and documentation. Our twenty years of expertise in clinical laboratories have created a document control solution that guides you to full compliance with all laboratory standards, regulations, and best practices. Document Control provides an automated, centralized platform for all of your document approvals, workflows, edits, sign-offs, audits, and more—with flexibility and customization features to match your laboratory’s unique needs.
Power-Up Your Documents
If you’ve been managing a paper-based or SharePoint process and are ready to take your documents to the next level, Document Control provides the convenience, flexibility, and power that you’ve been missing.
Document Control is paperless and cloud-based, 100% secure, and available 24/7/365, with no IT support needed. Upload Word files, PDFs, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoints, and even videos. Your documentation is stored securely, under your full control, and conveniently available to your employees.
Our platform is built around manuals, just like you're currently using in the laboratory. A virtual manual is always accessible online. Build manuals by department, bench, laboratory, job description, location, or any other criteria. When a document is revised or replaced, it's updated in all of your virtual manuals. Assign administrative permissions to define which leaders are responsible for periodic reviews, creating new documents to be approved, printing controlled copies and keeping track of which employees have signed off on which policies and procedures. Employees will always see the approved and current versions of policies and procedures. Retired versions are available to supervisors and administrators for historical purposes.
"We have been transitioning from an older system using word documents kept in a secure drive. MediaLab has offered the ability to collaborate on document revisions, securely track document changes, and feel more assured that only the most current version of each document is in use. We can also see at-a-glance what documents exist as approved, in-review or needing update and can see usage reports to know which are most valuable. The system also allows for remote access, which is essential to making it available wherever you are that has internet connectivity."

Make Compliance Easy
CAP, CLIA, Joint Commission, FDA, EPA, ISO 15189
, 21 CFR Part 11
. Document Control helps you meet them all.
Document management in the laboratory is subject to CAP, CLIA, Joint Commission, FDA, EPA, ISO 15189
, and 21 CFR Part 11
standards. MediaLab’s Document Control incorporates regulation-driven best practices to keep you compliant and give you more time to focus on patient care. Employees access only the approved and current versions of your policies and procedures, ensuring they can find only the most up-to-date information, quickly and easily.
Role-based administrative rules allow you to control who can add or edit your documents, as well as who’s involved in reviews and approvals. Each department can specify their own roles and workflows to accommodate their current processes. MediaLab automatically sends notification emails and to-do list tasks to administrators and end-users to improve efficiency and ensure document lifecycle tasks are completed, and alerts are sent to lab management before anything slips out of compliance.
We recently had our CAP Laboratory inspection in which the inspectors raved about our document control system.

"I have used several Document Management systems. This is by far the easiest to use. It meets all our regulatory requirements.

"MediaLab DC has been GREAT!

Would highly recommend MediaLab to any laboratory especially accredited facilities."
