J Clin Microbiol Partially in response to public furor over deaths attributed to false-negative Pap smear readings, Congress m550-a the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act of CLIA ’67 required these large laboratories to adhere to quality control QCproficiency testing PTtest performance, and personnel standards.

Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP): Is It Value-Added for Clinical Microbiology?

EQC was designed to minimize the frequency of external QC that was required to control laboratory test systems, help reduce costs and resources for laboratories, and acknowledge technological advances.

This document is based on United States US regulations and will also serve as a useful resource for a wider audience. It should be noted that these guidelines, along with the tenets of EQC, can still be used by clinical microbiology laboratories as a component of an IQCP. US Statutes at Large 81 Laboratory quality control based on risk management; approved guideline.

Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. NovemberVenue: The data showed a failure rate of less than 0. MA includes guidelines that may be followed when using an MIS of proven reliability to take a modified QC approach, rather than meeting requirements included in the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of regulations.

The QC recommendations in the CLSI standards are supported by data demonstrating that following CLIA default QC daily testing of QC strains will not improve the quality of patient results for laboratories that have documented satisfactory performance with a specified amount of daily QC testing.

The clinical and anatomic pathology laboratory specialties represented include microbiology, immunology, chemistry, hematology, immunohematology, cytopathology, histopathology, genetic testing, and informatics. Subscription pricing is determined by: Results of the survey of the quality assurance for commercially prepared microbiology media.


CMS states that IQCP is a new, flexible QC option that provides the opportunity to tailor QC to your unique testing environment and patients and will establish the appropriate quality practices which will reduce the likelihood of errors occurring in your laboratory.

Clinical Laboratory Improvement Advisory Committee (CLIAC) | DLS |CDC

If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. Last, a nonvoting liaison representing the laboratory industry participates on the Committee. On 2 SeptemberASM’s Committee on Laboratory Practices wrote a letter to Andrew Slavitt, Acting Administrator for CMS, stating that we as clinical scientists rely on published literature, statistically derived data, and evidence-based medicine to guide our practice http: As the voice of the U.

CLIA ’88 2 set forth new regulations for personnel standards, specimen management, QC, PT, and quality assurance QA for all entities performing laboratory testing and mandated that testing must follow manufacturers’ recommendations. The letter requested data from CMS to support the notion that applying IQCP to clinical microbiology tests would improve patient outcomes.

The Committee includes diverse membership across laboratory specialties, professional roles, laboratory management, technical, physicians, nurses and practice settings academic, clinical, public healthand includes a consumer representative. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards. One other facet of the RA is to note both the frequency of occurrence and impact of possible laboratory errors.

Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP): Is It Value-Added for Clinical Microbiology?

Likewise, the use of EQC for the past decade for our diagnostic microbiology test systems has proven reliable. You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time.

Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act of Prior to that time, there were few regulations for laboratories. This document uses a risk assessment approach to the management of policies, procedures, and practices for the tasks of analyzing, evaluating, controlling, and monitoring risk. Sharpa Melissa B. Individualized quality control plan IQCP: Stakeholders expressed concerns at this meeting that manufacturers did not provide flsi with sufficient information regarding QC and that a one-size-fits-all requirement for QC would not work with all new technologies.


Add to Alert PDF. Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute. Again, as stated in the ASM letter to CMS, there are many tests in clinical microbiology where additional QC testing does nothing to prevent reporting erroneous results on patient’s isolates or samples.

To this end, our clinical microbiology community is more than willing to have its members assist CMS m50-aa this endeavor. Developing an IQCP involves a review of cclsi entire testing process, beginning with specimen collection preanalytic and continuing through the analysis of cksi specimen analytic until the final test result is reported postanalytic.

It is anticipated that MA will be used extensively in the United States and internationally to reduce resources spent on excessive QC testing. For laboratories accredited by the College of American Pathologists CAPit should be noted that the most recent version of the CAP checklist m50- require testing of an external control every 31 days 5.
