Why did these organizations collaborate?What will it cost?Why should these organizations collaborate?
The Joint Commission, API, and ASCP have individual programs that focus on key services for laboratories. By providing this opportunity, we hope to enhance the value of accreditation and related services, and most importantly - reduce costs, improve service, provide new and exciting educational opportunities and enhance the breadth of survey expertise for our Lab Advantage customers. Together, we provide an opportunity for laboratories in every kind of setting to obtain needed survey, proficiency testing, and education products by bringing them together in a one-step, economic no-hassle fashion. Each organization can continue to concentrate on their core mission to be the best in their field.
The collaboration will result in reduced costs to laboratories. It is our goal to work toward this end, and introduce other efficiencies into the laboratory process that improve operations and quality of services.
The Joint Commission, API, and ASCP are all committed to delivering high quality services at the lowest reasonable cost to our members. We can enhance our individual product lines through a collaborative approach.
