Ideagen partnership with the College of American Pathologists
Pathologists play a vital part in diagnosis, management and prevention of illnesses. They provide critical information that influences a patient's treatment plan and prognosis. From cancer to infections, pathologists uncover the hidden stories within our bodies, enabling doctors to understand the full picture of a patient's health. Without their precise and comprehensive work, effective treatment would be significantly more challenging to achieve.
With such an important role to play in healthcare pathways, they rightly adhere to a number of critical standards. Supporting them to enhance laboratory quality and improve patient care, is the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
With approximately 20,000 labs in over 100 countries, CAP is the world's largest association composed exclusively of pathologists. It is recognized as the global leader in improving the quality of services using established performance standards, providing a clear roadmap not only for achieving accreditation, but also running a high-quality laboratory.
Ideagen already work with a number of CAP member laboratories, so know first hand how strong the focus is on enhancing laboratory quality and improving patient care, providing laboratory accreditation, interlaboratory proficiency testing, physician education, and a wealth of data on the current state of pathology and laboratory medicine.
There’s a huge sense of reassurance we can all gain from knowing the rigour behind the profession, which is why Ideagen is incredibly proud to have been vetted and approved by CAP as being suitable for members to achieve accreditation and ensure laboratory quality assurance and safety.
The support Ideagen can offer is both through our quality management solutions, that enable pathologists to ensure they’re meeting the required standards within their discipline (such as Laboratory and Forensic Drug Testing Accreditation, ISO 17025, and ISO 15189) and also through our compliance and governance validation service, Ideagen CompliancePath.
The College of American Pathologists’ commitment to high-quality, cost-effective patient care places it at the forefront of the health care industry, working on behalf of patients, pathologists and the public, by fostering and advocating excellence in the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine worldwide.
Ideagen is looking forward to supporting more CAP members to detect, manage and prevent chronic diseases, for the benefit of patients worldwide.
