About QC Tools

The overall aim of this tool it to improve data quality issues, to reduce review and acceptance times, and ultimately to reduce ping-to-chart times. Furthermore, once one of the developed algorithms is mature and effective enough, existing commercial software might decide to adopt it with a relatively easy transition based on the existing working implementation.

The speed in prototyping, a characteristic of the adopted Python language, eases the decision to abandon a developed algorithms in case that is not effective or a commercially supported implementation becomes available. QC Tools is written in Python (both 2.7+ and 3.4+ supported), and the current stable release is 1.7.2.
