Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute. Subsequently, CAP conducted three surveys among clinical microbiology laboratories, and to determine the failure rates of commercially prepared media. CMS states that IQCP is a new, flexible M50-q option that provides the opportunity to tailor QC to your unique testing environment and patients and will establish the appropriate quality practices which will reduce the likelihood of errors occurring in your laboratory.
The views expressed in this Commentary do not necessarily reflect the views of the journal or of ASM. Facebook Twitter Email Syndicate. This standard is also available to be included m50-w Standards Subscriptions.
It defines QC as the set of operations, processes, and procedures designed to monitor the measuring system to ensure the results are reliable for the intended clinical use. CLSI document EP23 also describes good laboratory practice for developing and maintaining a quality control program for medical laboratory testing using recognized risk management n50-a.

Again, as stated in the ASM letter to CMS, there are many tests in clinical microbiology where additional QC testing does nothing to prevent reporting erroneous results on clzi isolates or samples.
Author information Copyright and License information Disclaimer. Results of the survey of the quality assurance for commercially prepared microbiology media. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. Errors in laboratory medicine can certainly have significant effects on patient care, and we in the clinical microbiology community clearly support quality improvement measures which have the potential to positively impact patient outcomes.
The letter requested data from CMS to support the notion that applying IQCP to clinical microbiology tests would improve patient outcomes. These two options would apply to all nonwaived tests and would become effective on 1 January The data showed a failure rate of less than 0.

These data demonstrated that retesting of many types of commercially prepared microbiological culture media with QC strains in-house will not improve the quality of patient results. It is anticipated that MA will be used extensively in the United States and internationally to reduce resources spent on excessive QC testing.
CLIA ’67 required these large laboratories to adhere to quality control QCproficiency testing PTtest performance, and personnel standards.
The streamlined QC approach was developed following an evaluation of data provided by the American Society for Microbiology for a survey conducted to determine the QC failure rates of commercial J50-a. You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time.
The implementation of IQCP in clinical microbiology laboratories will most certainly be an added burden, the benefits of which are currently mm50-a.

Performance standards for antimicrobial susceptibility testing; 25th informational supplement. Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act Amendments of The power in these numbers is obvious, and there is ample evidence to categorize media as being exempt or nonexempt.

The frequency of errors can be determined by reviewing historical data; however, the accurate j50-a of patient harm resulting from these errors is highly variable and a nearly impossible task.
Quality control for commercial microbial identification systems.
J Clin Microbiol Registration is now closed. Likewise, for commercial microbial identification systems MIS that use two or more substrates, CLIA ’88 requires QC testing with positive and negative reactivity controls for each substrate with each batch, lot number, and shipment of reagents. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards.
The advice and guidance CLIAC provides to HHS pertains to general issues related to improvement in clinical laboratory quality and laboratory medicine practice. These data showed that the failure rate due to the MIS itself was less than 0. We thank the following for their thoughtful discussions of IQCP over the past year: This clsk has been cited by other articles in PMC.
In addition, CMS mandates that the data referenced in the IQCP must support the rationale for the number, csli, and frequency of QC testing performed, yet it also indicates that QC for a commercial test cannot be less than that recommended by the manufacturer.
