The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is an internationally recognized program and the only one of its kind that utilizes teams of practicing laboratory professionals as inspectors. Designed to go well beyond regulatory compliance, the program helps laboratories achieve the highest standards of excellence to positively impact patient care.

CAP LINKS consolidates inspection findings in a variety of formats for the entire system. Information includes deficiencies cited at the most recent inspection for each individual laboratory as well as the actual checklist question text for easy reference.

With CAP LINKS you can:

  • Review overall inspection findings across all of your laboratory sites
  • Compare performance across specific laboratory sections or disciplines within your organization
  • Prepare for future inspections
  • Focus on specific items that have been cited as deficient at multiple laboratory sites
