The arrival of a new decade means that your lab faces a rapidly changing healthcare environment and increasing pressure from all sides. Regulatory responsibilities can sometimes take a back seat to other pressing issues, creating complications in response to unexpected deficiencies identified by accreditors and inspectors.

Knowing in advance what surveyors and inspectors are looking for in 2020 is key to being ready for your lab’s assessment! Attend this webinar and get the latest intelligence on emerging trends accreditors are now focusing on and how your lab should prepare.

This 90-minute program, including an interactive Q&A session, will help keep your accreditation in good standing, avoid risks and potential fines, citations, or sanctions, and enable your lab to develop strategies to maintain regulatory readiness at all times for the duration of 2020!

You’ll learn about new deficiencies now being found in labs—and primary pitfalls to avoid—according to the CAP, COLA, and CMS. This is must-know, expert guidance for taking a proactive, preventive role this year to avoid unwelcome publicity, and loss of reimbursement or even certification!
