Panic Value Reporting
If there are any panic values, they are called immediately to your designated staff member. Results are reported presently via fax at LHC expense. In the near future interface ordering and results will be available.
Clinical laboratories were the first health care entities to come under regulatory scrutiny by the Office of the Inspector General (O.I.G.) as far back as 1992. While Laboratory Compliance programs have matured and evolved over the past decade, ongoing scrutiny and new regulations make it essential for such programs to be reviewed in the new context and in the light of many recently issued advisory opinions and work plans from the O.I.G.
Taking the time to ensure information remains accurate from the point of order, to testing, to reporting, to claim submission is critical, especially when reliance is on multiple systems to work together to produce a clean claim. Lister Laboratory has a compliance program that is well designed and effective in meeting the regulatory obligations unique to its structure and operations.
Lister Healthcare strives to create and implement a culture of compliance by offering an experienced, professional staff care for your patient testing as well as keep up to date information flowing to our referring providers regarding their chosen services rendered. We hope to help our clients stay educated and current on the risks and requirements the law demands. Please contact our representatives to schedule your consult today. We are prepared, aware, and ready to help you meet your needs and stay compliant.
