New Dark Report Webinar: Medicare’s New IQCP Requirements: What You Need to Know, What Your Lab Must Do
NEW WEBINAR — JANUARY 22, 2015
Labs have until January 1, 2016 to establish the principals of IQCP in their labs. After that, CMS will no longer allow EQC methods.
IQCP introduces many new elements into the QC process.
Are you and your lab staff ready for what is new, what is different, and what you should be doing to prepare?
Compliance with CLIA requirements is essential for every medical laboratory that performs non-waived testing. The big news is that a major change in how labs must meet quality control standards is about to take place, with an effective date of January 1, 2016.
The new development opens up a new way for your laboratory to meet the quality control standards of CLIA. The revisions published by CMS now allow labs to develop and use an IQCP (Individual Quality Control Plan) as a way to meet these new quality control standards. This fact alone should have the attention of every laboratory director of a CLIA-accredited lab.
Here’s just some of what you’ll learn during this information-packed 90-minute webinar:
- Understand the basics of an individual quality control plan and what makes it different from other approaches to lab quality control
- Determine the proper procedures for risk assessment
- Identify and evaluate the sources of potential failures and errors in a testing process that impact the accuracy and precision of test results
- Evaluate the risks specific to your laboratory
- Reduce and mitigate residual risk with defined processes and tools
- Develop quality assurance protocols that focus on providing confidence that quality requirements will be fulfilled
- Learn the steps necessary to building your lab’s individualized quality control plan
