CLIA requires PT (Proficiency Testing) for all non-waived laboratory testing and further requires a passing score to retain the ability to perform patient tests. Failure in PT can result in a "cease testing" order from CLIA. Proper documentation is essential and mandatory. CLIA has specific rules and regulations governing PT testing and has recently issued new warnings and restrictions on how PT is to be performed. Failure to adhere to their guidelines can be catastrophic to your laboratory's ability to test. This session will explain the rules of PT testing, the PT testing "danger zones", and CLIA's stance on PT referral. This session also gives tips and techniques to assure good PT performance. We will also examine how to investigate and follow-up on PT failures and where the problems are most commonly found. If your laboratory performs patient testing, you cannot afford to miss this comprehensive look at the entire process of PT testing.
