Quality Assurance (In-house QA)
This program reviews all phases of testing performed within the Division of Epidemiology and Laboratory Services to ensure a high level of quality. Review of quality control information, monitoring statistical data, interviews with personnel, comparison of actual work to the written procedures, and the evaluation of procedures are performed to detect potential problems that may have an impact on the quality or timeliness of results. Quality assurance committees act on information affecting the pre-analytic, analytic, and post-analytic phase of the work. The division's quality assurance plan is maintained, updated and monitored by this program.
