901-17 Surviving IQCP Pre- and Post-CAP Inspection


January 31, 2017
Webinar

On January 1, 2016, CLIA and CMS regulations were revised to include the Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP) that provides an alternative method for performing quality control in the clinical laboratory. In light of this change, the CAP checklist now contains five Phase II elements that cover IQCP document preparation and review. This presentation will summarize the key elements examined by

941-17 Computerized Physician Order Entry for Laboratory Test Orders


February 16, 2017
Webinar

The laboratorian’s main goal should be the correct utilization of laboratory tests for diagnosis, monitoring and/or prognosis of patient disease. Thus, participation by laboratory professionals in order set creation is sensible and enhances the value of the laboratory professional as a true partner of the treating physician aid “at the patient bedside”.

904-17 New Diagnostics for Antimicrobial Resistance


February 21, 2017
Webinar

Antibiotic resistant pathogens are a public health threat that have the potential to revert medical practice to the pre-antibiotic era. The primary drivers of antibiotic resistance are antibiotic use and the transmission of resistant pathogens. Diagnostic testing holds great promise of positively impacting both of these drivers, resulting in a decrease of resistant infections. This program will fo
