CAP 15189: Elevating Laboratory Medical Management

From its earliest years, the CAP has fostered a culture of partnership and collaboration that embraces members, staff, clinical partners, health care executives, government agencies, and many others. Collaboration always has been an important quality driver in the CAP’s hallmark proficiency testing and accreditation programs. The CAP innovated once again in 2008 with the launch of a laboratory improvement program to offer CAP accreditation to the ISO 15189 standard: CAP 15189. This accreditation program creates a quality culture meant to connect the dots between risk management and quality improvement.

A laboratory that is very standard in delivery of results… becomes the laboratory that everybody wants to use.
