CompuNet Awarded Accreditation from College of American Pathologists
The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) awarded accreditation to CompuNet Clinical Laboratories based on results of a recent on-site inspection conducted by CAP inspectors. The inspection team included practicing pathology and laboratory medicine professionals.
The CAP has congratulated the laboratory for its excellence in the services being provided. CompuNet is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
The U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, as being equal-to or more-stringent-than the government’s own inspection program.
During the CAP accreditation process, designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management.
“CompuNet Clinical Laboratories demonstrates leadership, innovation, and a passionate commitment to standards of excellence while providing the highest quality services, ultimately for patients,” said Bharati Jhaveri, MD, FCAP, chair of the CAP’s Council on Accreditation. “The CAP congratulates CompuNet on its recent CAP Accreditation.”
We commend the pathology and laboratory medicine teams for this significant accomplishment that further demonstrates our commitment to high-quality patient care at CompuNet Clinical Laboratories.
