5 Significant increase in the number of IVF cycles performed at our centre Need to improve our lab efficiency Double manual witnessing is time consuming and distracting Concept of Involuntary automaticity the second witness may see what he expected to see

6 Electronic witnessing RFID Tags Radio frequency identification labels (IVFWitnessTM, UK) RFID Tag Reader Barcodes (MatcherTM, FertilityQMS Ltd, UK) RFID reader Scanner RFID Patient Card Controlling software

7 Timing required for an ex-novo installation of an electronic witnessing system (RI Witness ) into a busy IVF clinic: to integrate and install the system in the working area for the setting and configuration of the working flow-chart Patient Satisfaction for the training of all the clinical embryologists

8 Work Area Readers Controlling Software 4 working days PC Ad Monitor Barcode Reader Training of Laboratory Staff STAFF TRAININ G 7 working days

9 Adjustment of the system workflow according to our laboratory s existing protocols Reduction of the system users errors to less than 1% Double manual witnessing simultaneously performed True mismatches = mismatches derived from a simultaneous presence of two different patient samples in the working area Secondary mismatches = mismatches derived from acceptable common errors (i.e. preallocated tags within the frequency range of the reader, but outside of the workstation)


11 Validation period Post-validation period Patients (N) Witnessing steps (N) % (17/2099) 0.66% (39/5921) True mismatch rate (%) 0.09% (2/2099) 0.10% (6/5921) Secondary mismatch rate (%) 0.71% (15/2099) 0.56% (33/5921) Mismatch rate (%) 0.1% mismatch/step x 7 steps/cycle = ~0.7% mismatch/cycle x 0.25 pregnancy/cycle= ~0.17% mismatch/pregnancy


13 A secure system providing exit and entry point management between the Lab & cryopreservation using Brady barcode labels.

24 06/18/14 Awared of IVF mix-up risk? Yes, definitely: 11.9% (28/236) Yes, vaguely: 64.8 % (153/236) Concerned about IVF mixup? No: 8.5% (20/236) No: 23.3% (55/236) Yes, definitely: 39.8% (94/236) Yes, quite: 51.7% (122/236)

25 06/18/14 Anxiety reduction with EW No: 6.8% 16/236) ELECTRONIC WITNESSING Yes, definitely: 80.9 (191/236) Yes, vaguely: 12.3 % (29/236)

26 06/18/14 Traceability Yes, vaguely: 11,8% (28/236) No: 1.3% (3/236) Yes, definitely: 86.9% (2505/236) Patients reassurance Yes, quite: 39.8% (94/236) Yes, definitely: 51.7% (122/236) Multiple logistic regression analysis did not revealed any influence of socio-demographic variables on patient s attitudes toward IVF electronic witness system.

27 Easy to implement Safeguards the reliability of the entire IVF process Traceability of each step performed Reduction of staff workload and distractions Patients reassurance
