   Online Virtual Microscopy Education Programs
   The CAP offers online education programs that use advanced imaging technology to present images from actual glass slides for a
   variety of sites and specimen types. This technology simulates a microscope, allowing you to scan the image and use multiple
   magnifications to view the material. From the images and clinical information provided, you select a diagnosis, answer learning
   assessment questions, and receive immediate feedback online.
   The CAP’s online virtual microscopy education activities are compatible with the Windows operating system and require Internet
   access. The download speed and the appearance of the activity will vary depending on the type and speed of your Internet
   connection, computer’s power, and browser. CAP Education courses are best viewed using the following browsers:
        T Internet Explorer 6.x and higher – Windows XP
         T Firefox 2.x – Windows XP
         T Internet Explorer 7.x – Windows Vista
         T The CAP does not recommend using a Macintosh to view Education courses regardless of browser version.

    Staff accounts for two-thirds of direct clinical laboratory costs and management of staffing levels is central to managing overall
    laboratory expenses. In this study, key staffing ratios are calculated for four different laboratory testing sections (anatomic
    pathology, chemistry/hematology/immunology, microbiology, and transfusion medicine) and participants are provided with
    information about staffing levels for all participating institutions.

    Objective
    Measure staffing in different areas of the laboratory, calculate key staffing ratios, and compare key staffing ratios with other
    institutions.

    Data Collection
    Participants will use their laboratory or institution’s revenue and usage reports to obtain billable test counts and staffing figures
    for the most recently completed fiscal year for four key laboratory testing sections.

    Performance Indicators
    • Anatomic pathology indicator: histology blocks/histotechnologist, cytology accessions/cytotechnologist
    • Chemistry/hematology/immunology indicator: billable tests/non-management FTE
    • Microbiology indicator: billable tests/non-management FTE

 Both CAP’s Laboratory Accreditation Program and The Joint Commission require laboratories to have mechanisms in place to
 communicate critical values in a timely and accurate manner to clinical care providers. A common laboratory practice is to
 repeat critical values before reporting the test results to the clinical care provider. With today’s modern instrumentation, this
 may be an unnecessary step that delays the reporting of critical test results without adding value to the quality or accuracy of
 the test result.

Objective
Determine the rate of repeated values changed from a critical to a non-critical value, the rate of repeated chemistry and
hematology values that differed significantly from the original value as defined by the participating laboratory, the threshold
differences defined by the laboratory as clinically significant, and the additional time required to analyze the repeated test.

Data Collection
For potassium, glucose, WBC count, and platelet counts, identify 40 consecutive, repeated critical results and record the
following:
• Initial and repeated test results
• If the repeated test result was significantly different as defined by your laboratory
• If the repeated test result was still considered a critical value
• Time the initial and repeated tests resulted from the analyzer
• Time of critical result notification
 Record the total number of critical results that were reviewed and provide a list of the analytes for which the laboratory defines
 a critical value. Point of care testing is excluded from this study.

Performance Indicators
• Rate of repeated results that met the criteria for a critical result
 • Rate of repeated results that were significantly different from the original value, according to
   institutional policy

    The 2009 Joint Commission Patient Safety Goal NPSG.03.05.01: “Reduce the likelihood of patient harm associated with the use
    of anticoagulant therapy [formerly Goal 3E]” requires systematic changes in patient care to reduce the likelihood of patient
    harm associated with the use of anticoagulation therapy. The CAP also closely reviews laboratory anticoagulation testing
    (HEM.23220-23575).
    Errors in anticoagulation testing in the laboratory have directly contributed to patient harm in several well-documented
    instances. Laboratories play an important role in anticoagulation management and should routinely review their management
    activities.

    Objective
    Determine how laboratories monitor INR calculations, patient values, and reference ranges (per HEM.23430) and determine
    the percentage of critical PT/INR results that are successfully provided to a licensed caregiver.

    Data Collection
    Perform an audit of the laboratory’s most recent PT test validation to determine if the five required validation components for
    correct INR calculations were incorporated and documented. The five validation components are:
            1. Change in (most recent) lot or type of PT reagent recorded and compared to prior lot
            2. Change of instrumentation recorded and compared to prior instrument (if applicable)
            3. Establishment of the most recent PT reference range
            4. INR calculation validation
            5. At defined intervals, PT/INR results and calculations are audited
    In addition, prospectively review 40 critical PT/INR results occurring over a three-week period (or if less than 40 are received,
    the total number of critical PT/INR results) to determine the number that were successfully reported to a licensed caregiver with
    read-back.
    A survey will also include questions related to the prevalence of PT/INR point of care testing, how inter- and intra-laboratory
    comparisons are performed for PT/INR tests, the current critical values, turnaround times for PT/INR, and additional laboratory
    anticoagulation practices.

    Performance Indicators
    Primary:
    • Percentage of successfully communicated PT/INR critical results to the responsible caregiver

    Secondary:
    • Percentage of required validation components for correct INR calculations documented for the most
      recent PT test validation

 A benign diagnosis in a surgical specimen in the setting of a radiographically suspicious abnormality may be due to a
 non-representative sample, and lack of recognition of discordance by the clinical team may lead to a delay in diagnosis. This is
 of particular importance with breast lesions. Correlation of findings in the surgical pathology report with radiologic findings is
 important for quality patient care.

Objective
Determine the rate that surgical pathology reports correlate histologic abnormalities with radiographic findings.

Data Collection
Retrospectively review 40 surgical reports for correlation of the histologic findings with radiologic findings. Participants will be
asked to tabulate the number of specimens for which radiologic findings were available and the number of cases that contained
specific histologic findings that correlated with the radiographic findings. Specific radiographic findings (ie, calcifications,
multiple abnormalities) will also be assessed for notation in the final surgical pathology report.

Performance Indicators
Primary:
• Rate of pathologic-radiologic correlation in surgical pathology reports of breast biopsies

Secondary:
• Rate of pathologic-radiologic correlation of specific radiographic lesions (calcifications, mass,
  multiple lesions, etc.) in surgical pathology reports
 • Rate of breast specimens received with specific radiographic abnormality noted on the requisition slip

Q-TRACKS Clinical Pathology Monitors

                                  Patient Identification Accuracy QT1
 The proper identification of a patient is vital to reporting accurate laboratory results and meeting The Joint Commission National
 Patient Safety Goal #1: “Improve the accuracy of patient identification.” Since the majority of testing is performed away from
 the patient, patient identification, labeling of specimens, and coordination with test requisitions must be conducted accurately
 and completely. By continuously monitoring for wristband errors, participants can promptly identify and correct problems that
 may interfere with patient care services.


Objective
Assess the incidence of wristband errors within individual institutions, compare performance between participating institutions,
and identify improvement opportunities.
Data Collection
On six predetermined days per month, participants will monitor patient wristband identification for all phlebotomies performed
at their institution. Phlebotomists will tally the total number of wristbands checked, the number of errors found, and the types of
wristband error. This monitor includes all routinely wristbanded patients. (Emergency department patients are included only if the
emergency department routinely applies wristbands to these patients.)
Performance Indicator                                  Performance Breakdown
• Wristband Error Rate (%)                             • Breakdown of Wristband Error Types (%)




                                    Blood Culture Contamination QT2
 Despite advancements in blood culture practices and technology, false-positive blood culture results due to contaminants
 continue to be a critical problem. Blood culture contamination rate is associated with increased length of hospital stay, additional
 expense, and the administration of unnecessary antibiotics and is the primary indicator of preanalytical performance in
 microbiology. The CAP and other accrediting organizations require you to monitor and evaluate key indicators of quality for
 improvement opportunities. Use this monitor to help you meet this requirement.

Objective
Determine the rate of blood culture contamination using standardized criteria for classifying contaminants.
Data Collection
On a monthly basis, participants will tabulate the total number of blood cultures processed and the total number of
contaminated blood cultures. For the purposes of this study, participants will consider a blood culture to be contaminated
if one or more of the following organisms are found in only one of a series of blood culture specimens:
Coagulase-negative Staphylococcus; Micrococcus; Alpha-hemolytic (viridans) Streptococci; Propionibacterium acnes;
Corynebacterium sp. (diptheroids); or Bacillus sp. Optional institution-specific subgroups may be used to track parameters
that may affect contamination rates. Neonatal totals are tabulated separately from other blood cultures.

Performance Indicators
• Overall Contamination Rate (%)       • Neonatal Contamination Rate (%)       • Other Contamination Rate (%)



        Input forms for quarterly data collection will be sent to participants approximately three weeks prior to the quarter.

                                 Laboratory Specimen Acceptability QT3
    A substantial amount of rework, diagnostic and therapeutic delay, and patient inconvenience can result from specimen rejection.
    Patient redraws may be due to issues including unlabeled, mislabeled, and incompletely labeled specimens; clotted and/or
    hemolyzed specimens; and insufficient specimen quantity. By continuously monitoring specimen acceptability, collection, and
    transport, problems can be promptly identified and corrected, leading to improved patient care. Participation in this monitor can
    help satisfy the CAP’s checklist question GEN.20348, “Are preanalytic processes monitored?”

    Objective
    Identify and characterize unacceptable blood specimens that are submitted to the chemistry and hematology sections of
    the clinical laboratory for testing.

    Data Collection
    This monitor includes all blood specimens submitted for testing to the chemistry and hematology departments of the clinical
    laboratory. Weekly tallies of the total number of specimens received, the number of rejected specimens, and the primary reason
    each specimen was rejected will be recorded.

                                    In-Date Blood Product Wastage QT4
    Blood for transfusion is a precious resource. At a minimum, wastage of blood that is not out-of-date represents a financial loss to
    the health care system. More ominously, systemic wastage of blood may reflect an environment of care that is out of control and
    could pose risks to patient safety.

    Objective
    Compare the rates of blood product wastage (ie, units discarded in-date) in participating hospitals and track rates of
    improvement over time.

    Data Collection
    On a monthly basis, participants will use blood bank records to obtain information on the total number of units transfused for
    each type of blood component. Participants will track the number and type of blood units that are wasted in-date and the
    circumstances of wastage. The following types of blood components will be included: whole blood (allogeneic); red blood cells
    (allogeneic); frozen plasma; platelet concentrates; single donor platelets; and cryoprecipitate.

                   Satisfaction with Outpatient Specimen Collection QT7
 Specimen collection is one of the few areas of laboratory medicine that involves direct outpatient contact. As a result, patient
 satisfaction with this service is a vital indicator of quality laboratory performance. By participating in this monitor, you can help
 ensure that patient satisfaction with laboratory services is being measured as required by accrediting agencies such as The Joint
 Commission and the CAP (GEN.40050, 20348).

Objective
Assess patient satisfaction with outpatient phlebotomy services by measuring patients’ assessment of waiting time, discomfort
level, courteous treatment, and overall satisfaction.

Data Collection
On a monthly basis, participants will distribute copies of a questionnaire to a minimum of 25 outpatients (maximum of 99
outpatients), using predetermined data collection criteria. This monitor includes any outpatient undergoing venipuncture or for
whom assistance was required in specimen collection by your laboratory staff. This monitor excludes patients seen in the
emergency department, ambulatory surgery area, urgent care facility, chest pain center, 23-hour short-stay facility, employee
health department, outpatient health screening fair/promotion, dialysis center, nursing home, or extended care facility.

Performance Indicators
• Overall Patient Satisfaction Score
• Patients “More Than Satisfied” (%)




                                   Stat Test Turnaround Time Outliers QT8
 Measuring laboratory stat test turnaround time (TAT) is useful to the laboratory in evaluating the service delivery process. The
 stat test TAT outlier rate, expressed as a percent of tests missing target reporting times, is a measure of outcomes that evaluates
 how well the laboratory meets patient and clinician needs. This monitor helps meet CAP checklist question GEN.20316, “Does
 the QM program include monitoring key indicators of quality?”

Objective
Monitor the frequency with which stat test TAT intervals exceed institutional stat test TAT expectations.

Data Collection
Before beginning data collection, participants will establish a specimen receipt-to-report deadline for emergency department
(ED) stat potassium tests. On six predetermined days per month, participants will monitor the TAT of up to 10 randomly
selected ED stat potassium tests on each of three eight-hour shifts (up to 180 tests per month) and track the number of ED stat
potassium determinations reported later than the established reporting deadline. This monitor includes stat potassium tests
ordered as part of a panel and excludes stat potassium levels that are requested on body fluids other than blood, as part of
timed or protocol studies, or after the specimen arrives in the laboratory.

Performance Indicator                                            Performance Breakdowns

                                          Critical Values Reporting QT10
    Critical values in the laboratory are defined as results requiring immediate notification to the physician or caregiver for
    necessary patient evaluation or treatment. While critical value notification has been a routine practice in laboratory medicine for
    many years, recent regulations from agencies and accreditors such as CMS, The Joint Commission, and the CAP (GEN.20316,
    20365, 41320) have mandated that laboratories develop and implement an alert system for critical values. Use this monitor to
    document compliance with your laboratory’s alert plan.

    Objective
    Evaluate the documentation of successful critical values reporting in the general laboratory for both inpatients and outpatients
    according to the laboratory’s policy.

    Data Collection
    On a monthly basis, participants will evaluate 120 inpatient and 120 outpatient critical values for the designated sections.
    Data collection will include general chemistry, hematology, and coagulation analytes on the critical values list. Retrospectively,
    participants will record the total number of critical values monitored and if there was documentation of notification. This monitor
    will exclude critical values for microbiology, cardiac markers, drugs of abuse, therapeutic drug levels, urinalysis, blood gases,
    point of care tests, tests performed at reference laboratories, and critical values on discharged patients.

    Performance Indicators
    • Total Critical Values Reporting Rate (%)
    • Inpatient Critical Values Reporting Rate (%)
    • Outpatient Critical Values Reporting Rate (%)




                                       Turnaround Time of Troponin QT15
    The swiftness with which physicians establish diagnoses of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in patients presenting to the
    emergency department (ED) with chest pain may determine the type and predict the outcomes of therapy those patients will
    receive. Included in the total time consumed in establishing diagnoses of AMI are the component intervals required to measure
    biochemical markers of myocardial injury, one of the most critical of which is troponin. Help meet CAP checklist question
    GEN.20316 with this monitor.

    Objective
    Determine the median order-to-report turnaround time (TAT) of troponin (I or T) and the percent of troponin results reported by
    each institution’s established deadline.

    Data Collection
    Participants will record the TATs (in minutes) for three randomly selected troponin specimens obtained from patients seen in EDs
    on each of three traditional shifts (total of nine measurements) on six pre-determined days per month. TATs will be measured
    from the times the tests are ordered to the times that results are made available to ED personnel. Participants will also have the
    option of monitoring collection-to-receipt intervals.

    Performance Indicators
    • Median Troponin Order-to-Report TAT (minutes)
    • Troponin TAT Compliance Rate (%)



           Input forms for quarterly data collection will be sent to participants approximately three weeks prior to the quarter.

                                              Corrected Results QT16
 This Q-TRACKS monitor was developed in recognition of the importance of timely detection and correction of erroneous
 laboratory results. Accuracy in laboratory results is critical to the effectiveness of a physician’s plan of care for a patient. An
 erroneous result can delay or alter patient treatment; therefore, detection of erroneous results should be a priority in every
 laboratory and should be monitored as a key quality indicator. Help measure your compliance with CLIA 493.1299,
 Postanalytic Systems Quality Assessment, with this monitor.


Objective
Monitor the number of corrected test results within individual institutions and compare performance with that of all institutions
and those institutions similar to yours.

Data Collection
On a monthly basis, participants will monitor the number of corrected test results and the total number of billable tests for that
month. Test results for all patients in all care settings will be included, with the following exclusions: anatomic pathology
tests, narrative physician-interpreted tests (ie, bone marrow biopsies and peripheral smear reports), and point of care tests.

Performance Indicator
• Test Result Correction Rate (per 10,000 billable tests)




                                    Outpatient Order Entry Errors QT17
 Order accuracy bears an obvious relationship to the quality of laboratory testing. When the laboratory fails to complete a
 requested test, the diagnostic evaluation is delayed, potentially extending a patient’s hospital stay and prolonging therapy.
 When the laboratory completes a test that was not requested, the cost of care increases, patients may be subjected to
 unnecessary phlebotomy, and laboratory efficiency declines.

Objective
Measure the incidence of incorrectly interpreted and entered outpatient physician test orders into the laboratory computer,
compare performance across institutions, and track performance over time.

Data Collection
On six pre-selected weekdays per month, eight outpatient requisitions or order sheets will be compared to the orders entered
into the laboratory’s information system to determine if any order entry errors occurred. Order entry error categories include
requesting physician error, incorrect, missing, and extra test errors, test priority errors, and non-routine routing request errors.
Tests performed in transfusion medicine/blood bank or anatomic pathology are excluded.

Performance Indicators                                            Performance Breakdown
• Outpatient Order Entry Error Rate (%)                           • Breakdown of Error Types (%)

    Appropriate collection and labeling of patient specimens are essential for accurate specimen analysis and reporting of test
    results. Mislabeling of blood bank specimens can result in catastrophic outcomes when incompatible red blood cells are
    transfused. Accrediting agencies, such as AABB and the CAP (TRM.30550, 30575), require monitoring of key specimen
    quality issues and demonstration of a system for continual process improvement. This Q-TRACKS monitor will allow you to
    compare your performance to your peers.

    Objective
    Identify and characterize incorrectly collected and labeled blood specimens submitted to the blood bank for testing.

    Data Collection
    Participants will provide weekly tallies of the total number of specimens submitted to the blood bank and the number of rejected
    specimens. The primary reason for specimen rejection will be reported, based on the following categories:
    • Wrong collection container          • Requisition does not match specimen         • Duplicate specimen
    • Unlabeled specimen                  • Specimen hemolyzed                          • Specimen with any suitability concerns
    • Incompletely labeled specimen       • Specimen clotted                              later reported by caregivers
    • Mislabeled specimen                 • Insufficient specimen volume                • Other reason for rejection (ie, broken

   Gynecologic Cytology Outcomes: Biopsy Correlation Performance QT5
 The correlation of cervicovaginal cytology (Pap test) findings with cervical biopsy results has been a staple in the cytopathology
 laboratory’s quality assurance program. By monitoring this correlation, the laboratory can identify potential problems that
 require improvement, thereby ensuring better patient results.

Objective
Quantify the correlation between the findings of cervicovaginal cytology and corresponding histologic material.

Data Collection
On a monthly basis, participants will record information on true-positive, false-positive, and false-negative cytology-biopsy
correlations. False-negative correlations will be separated into four error categories. Participants will record the biopsy
diagnoses for Pap tests with an interpretation of atypical squamous cells (ASC-US and ASC-H) or atypical glandular cells
(AGC). This monitor includes patients for whom a cervical biopsy specimen is submitted to the laboratory and for whom a
satisfactory or satisfactory but limited Pap test has been submitted within three months previous to the biopsy or at the time
of the biopsy.

Performance Indicators
• Predictive Value of Positive Cytology (%)            • Sensitivity (%)
• Screening/Interpretation Sensitivity (%)             • Sampling Sensitivity (%)
• Percent Positive for ASC-US Interpretations          • Percent Positive for AGC Interpretations
• Percent Positive for ASC-H Interpretations

                          Laboratory testing may be performed in various areas within the hospital,
                          including:
                               • Emergency department
                               • Critical care unit
                               • Neonatal unit
                               • Surgical department
                               • Respiratory therapy
                               • Patient rooms


                          Under CLIA, all laboratories performing testing of human specimens, regardless
                          of location, size, or type, must perform proficiency testing on CLIA-regulated
                          analytes. For analytes not regulated under CLIA, the laboratory must still
                          establish the accuracy and reliability of its test procedures at least twice a year.

Point of Care Programs
In many hospitals today, laboratory testing has shifted from the central main laboratory to inpatient rooms,
emergency departments, and intensive care units. With this shift and the increased use of point of care instruments
within the hospital setting, we have developed this section to focus on point of care testing. This section is specifically
designed to assist you in selecting the most appropriate proficiency testing products for individuals performing near
patient and bedside testing in the hospital setting. For additional information about selecting the right products for
your institution, contact the CAP at 800-323-4040 option 1.

Please reference the following charts for the most appropriate proficiency testing module to meet your testing needs.

Additional Information
The College of American Pathologists and the National Kidney Disease Education
Program have an initiative to produce a gold standard to harmonize clinically
reported creatinine values. This initiative is analogous to what the federal health
agencies and the clinical laboratory community did to improve the accuracy of
cholesterol and glycohemoglobin testing.

      T Get a customized report that provides a summary of laboratory performance that includes peer group statistics
        and enhanced diagnostic information for early insight into potential problems.
       Note: The College of American Pathologists Laboratory Accreditation Program requires an additional calibration
      verification process for methods calibrated less frequently than once every six months. Please review the inspection
      checklist for information about suitable verification material for any method that is calibrated less often than at
      six-month intervals. The Calibration Verification/Linearity Surveys are designed to assess agreement of a
      laboratory with the method manufacturer’s calibration settings, but do not validate accuracy traceable to
      reference methods.

Linearity Surveys have linearity targets based on clinical relevance and general characteristics of currently available
methods. These criteria may not be reflective of the specific characteristics of the currently available single dose unit
technology methods. For customers using single dose unit technology, it is the laboratory’s discretion to assess the
appropriateness of the linearity targets when applied to this technology and to the clinical needs of their patients.

Additional Information
The College of American Pathologists and the National Kidney Disease Education
Program have an initiative to produce a gold standard to harmonize clinically reported
creatinine values. This initiative is analagous to what the federal health agencies and the
clinical laboratory community did to improve the accuracy of cholesterol and
glycohemoglobin testing.

Reference Range Services
The Reference Range Service is designed to help laboratories establish and/or verify reference intervals. Data collection and
analysis follows recommendations specified in the Clinical and Laboratory Standard Institute (CLSI) document, Defining,
Establishing, and Verifying Reference Intervals in the Clinical Laboratory Approved Guideline—Third Edition (C28-A3).
Laboratories will be required to submit 20 results from “normal/healthy” individuals for each analyte with information on the
sex, age, and race/ethnic background of each donor. Exclusionary criteria will be provided to facilitate identification of
appropriate donors.


Participants may submit donor results between February and November. The final deadline to return donor results to the
CAP will be December 1, 2010. Participant reports will be generated in June and December.


The following tables display the current platforms available for establishing or verifying reference intervals.

    Additional Information
    The Laboratory Preparedness Exercise (LPX) was developed as a collaborative effort
    between the College of American Pathologists, the Centers for Disease Control and
    Prevention (CDC) and the Association of Public Heath Laboratories (APHL). Laboratories
    will be sent live organisms that either exhibit characteristics of bioterrorism agents or
    demonstrate epidemiologic importance and will be expected to respond following
    Laboratory Response Network Sentinel Laboratory Guidelines if a bioterrorism agent is
    suspected. All agents provided are excluded from the CDC’s select agent list. These may
    include strains of Bacillus anthracis, Yersinia pestis, Francisella tularensis, and Brucella
    abortus that have been modified and are safe for testing in a laboratory that contains a
    certified Class II Biological Safety Cabinet and is capable of handling Category A and B
    agents.
