Developing and executing a well designed quality plan for the histology laboratory is essential in today’s health care market. Due to more stringent regulatory oversight and the high cost of re-work, labs can no longer procrastinate starting a Quality Management plan. Once established the plans must be continually monitored and revised as to not become stagnant or simply busy work. In this webinar we will explore how to establish a quality plan and how to keep it meaningful and alive to meet the needs of today’s managed health environment.
