CLIA requires that your laboratory assess the competency of point of care testing personnel who perform nonwaived testing. It is also good laboratory practice to periodically assess competency of all POC testing personnel, even on waived testing. Compass helps your point of care coordinators deliver custom competency assessments to hundreds or thousands of POCT & PPMP employees, track their completion and corrective action, and present a complete picture of your POCT & PPMP competency assessment program at any time.
