Program Description:
In 2011, CMS announced the replacement of “Equivalent QC” with a risk management based approach termed “IQCP”. This session provides a didactic lecture with an overview of QC for CLIA compliance and steps required to transition from Equivalent QC to IQCP. It is followed by a workshop where breakout groups select a specific device and begin the process of developing an IQCP.

Program Objectives:
At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. Consider current QC processes as they relate to risk management.

  2. Identify key resources for compliance with IQCP concepts.

  3. Develop individual quality control plans for all tests performed under their direction.
