Patient Test Check Up

Why PT Check Up?
Excellent patient care is your first concern. Surveys of testing sites with a CLIA certificate of waiver conducted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services indicate that high personnel turnover rates, lack of understanding about good laboratory practices, and inadequate training may raise quality concerns about practices that could lead to errors in patient testing and poor patient outcomes.

How the Program Works
Easy-to-use tools help you train your staff, evaluate instrument or method performance, troubleshoot, and assess staff competency. Your cost could be as low as $55 per year.
