We are at a historic crossroads, both in healthcare and in laboratory medicine. We’re seeing a pace of change and transformation that’s unprecedented since World War II. Successful labs require awareness and a keen understanding of the emerging healthcare marketplace.
Learn how your medical lab can survive the transition from volume- to value-based healthcare, by identifying opportunities to deliver recognized, unquestioned value to physicians, patients, parent hospitals, health systems and payers.
The Growing Role of Quality Management Systems In Clinical Laboratory Accreditation and Licensure
CLIA inspections are growing tougher every year. It’s the same story with Medicare accreditation of clinical laboratories. Requirements are tightening. Onsite lab inspections and assessments are becoming more rigorous.
Get a full understanding of how and why the use of a Quality Management System (QMS) is such a powerful way to put your laboratory at full compliance, ready for surprise inspections that result in a “no deficiency” outcome.
