Today’s tough healthcare environment means that laboratories face increasing pressure from all sides. Regulatory responsibilities can sometimes take a back burner to other pressing issues, causing some lab leaders to scramble in response to unexpected deficiencies identified by accreditors and CLIA inspectors.

Knowing in advance what surveyors and inspectors will be looking for in 2019 is key to being ready for your lab’s assessment! Attend this webinar and learn the Top 10 deficiencies accreditors will be focusing on in the future, and how your lab should prepare.

This 90-minute program, including an interactive Q&A session, will keep your accreditation in good standing, help you avoid risks to your CLIA certification and the potential perils of a CMS validation survey, and enable your lab to develop strategies to maintain regulatory readiness at all times in the coming year!

You’ll learn the most common deficiencies found in labs—and primary pitfalls to avoid regarding the requirements of the major regulatory and accrediting agencies, including CAP, COLA, The Joint Commission, and A2LA.

Watch this program, and our experts will guide you through the following specific strategies: 

•  Learn the list of Top 10 deficiencies from each accrediting agency
•  Use this list to identify potential regulatory compliance issues in your lab
•  Best practices for addressing identified deficiencies and barriers to regulatory readiness
