Title: ISO 15189:2012 and CLIA Clinical Laboratory Accreditation

This two-day course will use lecture, discussion and interactive exercises to assist you in understanding the benefit of the newly revised and recently published ISO 15189:2012 standard. Through the implementation of "best in class" guidance contained in ISO 15189, you will be able to:

  • Use a systems view of quality management to better design and implement "best in class" laboratory functions;
  • Design a "best in class" total laboratory process that addresses the principles of quality medical laboratory services; and
  • Implement pre-examination, examination and post-examination processes essential to "best in class" patient care, specific to your laboratory. 

The CLIA portion of the seminar will focus on a new risk-based initiative recently introduced by CMS: The IQCP or Individualized Quality Control Plan.   You will:

  • Gain an understanding of risk assessment and risk management concepts and tools;
  • Be able to list the five areas of risk identified by CMS; and
  • Understand how ISO 15189 and the CLIA regulations complement one another.
