In the United States up to 70% of all medical records are based upon laboratory results. In providing these critical services in patient care it is imperative that excellence is not only achieved but maintained.According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) laboratory facilities which perform even the most basic "waived" tests must ensure that either their staff or site be certified to maintain Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA) compliance.
Low testing volume Physician Operated Laboratories (POL) to high testing volume commercial or hospital laboratories understand that accreditation is the key to ensuring the highest level of Quality Assessment and Quality Control standards (i.e.- EQC, IQCP, PT).
For over 45 international laboratories for PEPFAR, public health laboratories, and private clinical offices MLT Consultants has provided professional, courteous, yet transparent expertise to our clients to ensure that they are compliant with local and Federal Government regulations, professional societies as well as insurance providers for liability concerns.
