PT/EQA Benefits Laboratory personnel • Educational value (Identify training needs) • Identifies skills gap and possible areas of improvement
PT/EQA Benefits Physician • TAT is reduced ie No repeat testing • Increases confidence in the lab’s results
PT/EQA Benefits Patient • Increases patient confidence in participating labs • Customer expectations are met i. e. quality care. • Reduces cost of medical care through reduced repeat testing in other laboratories.
PT/EQA Benefits Nationally and Regionally • Enhanced confidence in the Regional's Health institutions • Improves Medical Tourism and Global Competitiveness • Improves on actual man-hours devoted to working due to good health and grows the economy
