How will the new Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP) affect my laboratory? This MLN Connects™ National Provider Call on Monday, May 19; 2-3:30pm ET, 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. To Register: Visit MLN Connects™ Upcoming Calls. Space may be limited, register early.
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 January 1, 2016. This education and transition period gives laboratories the opportunity to learn about IQCP and implement their chosen QC policies and procedures. Prior to the call, providers are encouraged to review IQCP: A New QC Option and other IQCP educational materials on the CLIA website.
