The laboratory community has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to guide the updating of Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) personnel regulations to reflect the current and future practices in clinical laboratories that support clinical decision-making in an ever-evolving healthcare system.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has requested comments that it intends to use to update the existing CLIA personnel regulations in the future. ASCLS has created a website with detailed analysis and easy-to-use tools for all laboratorians to respond. ASCLS urges all laboratory professionals to provide comments to CMS with a central focus on strengthening laboratory personnel standards and ensuring the ongoing, invaluable contributions of laboratory professionals in the healthcare system.
Visit ASCLS.org and provide comments by the deadline on Monday March 12, 2018. . An easy-to-use template for comments is provided on the ASCLS Website
