How do you ensure quality patient testing across all of your laboratory sites?

The CAP LINKS Program consists of quarterly reports and graphs that summarize your most critical quality improvement data and presents the information together for all of your laboratory sites. The summarized reports save you valuable time and provide actionable information so that you can quickly spot and address issues that may impact quality.

With CAP LINKS, you can:

  • Process a tremendous amount of information in a short period of time
  • View laboratory-specific as well as system-wide or corporate data
  • Quickly spot strong performance as well as areas that need to be improved
  • Make quick and informed management decisions
  • Demonstrate your QI performance to administration

Who can benefit from CAP LINKS?

  • Multihospital systems
  • Academic medical centers with numerous testing locations
  • National commercial reference laboratories
  • Any organization with two or more testing sites

How Does it Work?

Reports and graphs are generated on a quarterly basis and distributed to an individual whom you designate as your system's primary contact. CAP LINKS is available for all of your CAP laboratory improvement programs, including Laboratory Accreditation, Surveys and Anatomic Pathology Education/EXCEL®, and/or LMIP® programs. Data used to generate CAP LINKS is accessed directly from the CAP database. Therefore, no additional data submission is required.
