There are many obstacles facing clinical laboratories these days. None so apparent as the staffing shortages we are currently faced with. Due to these shortages, we often find ourselves battling with staff turnover and the challenges it produces.

In this webinar we will discuss some of the reasons for the shortage as well as why laboratory personnel are moving on; whether they remain in the laboratory field, or move on to a different career altogether.

The main topic of our discussion will be on the onboarding and training processes for new employees and how to expedite both of these processes to have less of an impact to your business. From tools you can incorporate to assist with onboarding to topics that should be included in your onboarding plan – we’ll touch on them all.

This webinar will:
  • Assess why there is a staffing shortage in the clinical lab setting
  • Identify tools/systems that can be implemented to help with onboarding and training
  • Explain what needs to be part of your onboarding plan
  • Discuss training schedules

Laboratories within hospitals, private labs and physician offices all face the challenge of compliance with CLIA regulations. This is true both when a lab is initially applying for a CLIA license and also once the initial license is granted.

In this second part of our webinar series, we will further discuss laboratory compliance and dive deeper into laboratory personnel requirements as well as the pre-analytic, analytic, and post-analytic phases of laboratory testing. We will discuss the required personnel within the lab along with their job descriptions, staff training and competency assessments along with the importance of having an appropriate QA Plan in place within the lab. Having an efficient Document Management System is key to keeping your lab running smoothly and inspection ready at all times.

This webinar will:
  • Review key CLIA requirements
  • Identify the challenges and pitfalls to be avoided in setting up an internal lab compliance system
  • Discuss the requirements needed to maintain acceptable personnel files
  • Illustrate what’s needed to set up and maintain a QA Plan in the laboratory

Laboratory Compliance Simplified

Laboratories within hospitals, private labs and physician offices all face the challenge of compliance with CLIA regulations. This is true both when a lab is initially applying for a CLIA license and also once the initial license is granted.There are a number of personnel requirements, training requirements and accompanying documentation, quality control and method documents that need to be tracked and updated on an ongoing basis as tests change. Personnel changes and ongoing training and development must be tracked as well.

Most laboratories are ill-equipped to understand ALL of the specific requirements required for successful CLIA compliance. In addition, most do not have a formal structure to list the requirements and document their management methods. Without some form of electronic documentation format, most labs struggle to keep track of the multiple elements that must be managed to keep the lab well-organized and CLIA compliant. As a result, labs frequently experience deficiency notifications during routine inspection which cause concern and shift priorities to develop and implement policies and procedures required to ensure compliance.


This webinar will:
  • Review key CLIA requirements
  • Identify the challenges and pitfalls to be avoided in setting up an internal lab compliance system
  • Discuss various methods that can reduce the laboratorian's time and expertise requirements when implementing a CLIA compliance program
