    Abstract:

    This presentation covers the "Individualized Quality Control Plan” (IQCP) implemented by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on January 1, 2016. The guidance and concepts for IQCP are a formal representation and compilation of many of the activities currently undertaken in laboratories to ensure quality test results for patients.  The three main parts of IQCP are Risk Assessment, Quality Control Plan, and Quality Assessment.  IQCP permits the laboratory to customize its QC plan according to test method, environment, patient population, and personnel competency. 
    Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

    • Identify eligible test for IQCP
    • Identify the three sections of an IQCP
    • Prepare a plan for implementation of IQCP
