Individualized Quality Control Plan for CLIA Laboratory Non-Waived Testing
Clinical Labs

How will the new Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP) affect my laboratory? This MLN Connects™ National Provider Call will educate laboratories on IQCP, the new quality control option for Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) laboratories performing non-waived testing. IQCP will provide laboratories with flexibility in customizing Quality Control (QC) policies and procedures, based on the test systems in use and the unique aspects of each laboratory.

IQCP is voluntary. Laboratories will continue to have the option of achieving compliance by following all CLIA QC regulations as written. The IQCP Education and Transition Period began on January 1, 2014 and will conclude on December 31, 2015. This education and transition period gives laboratories the opportunity to learn about IQCP and implement their chosen QC policies and procedures.

When: Monday, May 19, 2014

Time: 2:00-3:30 pm Eastern Time

Target Audience: Laboratories, professional organizations, quality improvement experts and other interested stakeholders.
