COLA to offer lab quality program to American College of Physicians
Date:1/10/2013

January 10, 2013 -- COLA, a leading laboratory accreditor, today announced an agreement with the American College of Physicians (ACP) to promote a program of laboratory excellence to ACP members. The joint initiative is designed to assist Patient-Centered Medical Home practices in delivering quality and value-driven laboratory medicine to their patients through a new COLA laboratory recognition program, called Patient-Centered Laboratory Excellence (PCLE).

The program emphasizes continuous good laboratory practices above and beyond current regulatory requirements for clinical laboratories performing PPM, waived, moderate and high complexity testing.

"Through the PCLE program, COLA is helping to frame the laboratory's proper role in emerging new healthcare delivery models such as the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and Accountable Care Organizations (ACO)," said COLA CEO Doug Beigel. "Practitioners using the services of a COLA PCLE-recognized laboratory can be assured of high quality results, generated by well trained staff who use state-of-the-art communications to deliver enhanced access to results to both patients and providers.

"We are very pleased to welcome the American College of Physicians' support in the PCLE process, which will ultimately encompass many different organizations, representing a wide variety of healthcare aspects," he added.

"The quality and safety of in-office laboratory testing is a key priority for ACP since many clinical decisions are based on the results obtained," said Michael S. Barr, MD, MBA, FACP, who leads ACP's Medical Practice, Professionalism & Quality division. "COLA's PCLE program, coupled with ACP's Medical Laboratory Evaluation proficiency testing program, will help practices maintain confidence in the quality of their laboratory services and provide patient-centered care."

Under the terms of the agreement, ACP will promote the PCLE program to their membership, including
