CLMA volunteered to conduct an online pilot survey of its membership to help the Institute for Quality in Laboratory Medicine (IQLM) determine quality management activities in laboratories. Among the hospital-based members who were surveyed, approximately 25 percent responded. The data they volunteered provide a snapshot of the current state of laboratory quality management. The pilot survey is part of a larger IQLM plan to develop networks of laboratories to monitor and evaluate laboratory practices and services to enhance laboratory medicine. This pilot survey will be used by IQLM as a model to establish quality and patient safety networks, applicable to laboratories of all sizes and types. Performance comparisons and best practices may then be shared to reduce laboratory errors and improve patient safety.
