Proficiency Testing

Providence Laboratory Services participates in approved, external proficiency testing programs as part of the overall quality assurance program and as a means to satisfy regulatory and accrediting agency requirements. Proficiency Testing serves as an external validation of the quality of the laboratory's results and as a valuable self-monitoring tool. Each laboratory is enrolled in proficiency testing appropriate for the extent and complexity of patient testing performed.
