Following is an excerpt (see below to download the full article in PDF format):
Through acquisition, merger, or organic growth, labs may find their operations expanding regionally or nationally. If your lab is operating facilities in multiple states or testing specimens collected or received from patients in multiple states, you must understand the distinct laws and rules in each applicable state. As these state law requirements may be different from those that apply in the state in which your lab facility is based, you may need to alter certain business practices and update the lab’s compliance program and control protocols. All labs must also be cognizant of the ever changing legal landscape and monitor each applicable state for new or amended state laws and rules.
