Since the 1999 Institute of Medicine Report on medical errors, policymakers have worked aggressively to improve patient safety. In 2005, Congress passed patient safety legislation encouraging the reporting and analysis of medical errors and the dissemination of related findings. On the regulatory side, government agencies are working to refine and implement quality indicators for labs and to create an electronic health medical record by 2014. Each of these activities will affect laboratory operations and patient care. Join us and learn the latest from out panel of experts regarding the status of these initiatives and what they will mean for your laboratory.
