This educational video, presented by the CRI® Quality Advisors, provides a high-level overview of Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP), a CMS approved alternative Quality Control option replacing Equivalent Quality Control (EQC). The video identifies key elements and necessary steps for implementing the IQCP guidelines in the clinical laboratory. It defines IQCP, reviews the evolution of this concept from basic quality control, and provides brief discussions of its components, implementation, and benefits.
Included in the video are two guest speakers: Dr. John Daly, COLA Inc.’s Chief Medical Officer, providing added insights into how the implementation of IQCP enhances the quality of patient care and the physician/patient relationship, and Kathy Nucifora, MPH, MT(ASCP), COLA’s Accreditation Division Director, reviewing the steps laboratories need to take to develop and implement IQCP
