Simplify Your IQCP: A Practical Approach to Implementing your Individual QC Plan
This webinar was recorded on April 22, 2015.
On January 1, 2016, EQC will cease to be legal. All labs running EQC must either revert back to the US CLIA minimums or develop and switch to an Individual Quality Control Plan (IQCP). With less than 9 months to go, IQCP is still clouded in mystery. Join us for this free webinar that will clear the air and show you a simple, cost-effective approach to developing your IQCP. Participants will receive an IQCP "Start-up Kit" with real-world examples and have an opportunity to ask Dr. Westgard questions at the end of the presentation.
This webinar* is intended to educate healthcare laboratory professionals on the changing US CLIA regulations that take effect on January 1, 2016 and how to easily develop an Individual Quality Control Plan (IQCP) that's compliant.
Combining the power of Six Sigma benchmarking with Risk Assessment, industry expert Dr. James Westgard will show you a simple approach to IQCP. No expensive software or guidelines required. No complex matrices or failure mode analyses. Just a handful of printable forms. Topics include:
- Assessing performance objectively
- Choosing the right kind of quality control plan
- Implementing the right amount of QC
- Assuring results meet the clinical need of patients
Speaker: James O Westgard, Ph.D., FACB, Co-founder and principal in Westgard QC, Inc.
Participants will receive an IQCP “Start-up Kit” and follow along with real-world examples. The presentation will be followed by an interactive Q&A session that gives participants an opportunity to ask questions and learn how to utilize, customize and optimize the start-up kit for their own laboratory and methods.
If you've been waiting to find one resource to help make sense of IQCP, it's finally here. Join us on April 22th for the most helpful discussion of IQCPs since their introduction.
