When a physician office lab becomes moderately complex, CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) requires that a qualified Medical Director (with laboratory experience) and a qualified Technical Consultant monitor the lab to keep it compliant. Physician Office Consulting (POC) provides CLIA qualified Technical Consultants to navigate this ever changing complex environment. If a lab provides highly complex testing we can also provide a qualified Medical Director if needed. POC assists their clients with two different phases in coverage based on the lab’s complexity. There is the initial set up of a new lab, one fee covering the consultation and education of the clinic staff for approximately the first two months. The secondary phase covers the ongoing service of keeping the lab compliant and running efficiently, this includes a bi-monthly on-site visit. Additionally, our staff will assist the clinic in remaining compliant with CLIA and be present and participate with all scheduled surveys.
