The Lab Interoperability Cooperative (LIC) is comprised of Surescripts, the American Hospital Association (AHA), and the College of American Pathologists (CAP). The LIC operates under a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in coordination with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) within the United States Department of Health and Human Services. The group is organized to facilitate the electronic submission of reportable lab results from hospital laboratories to Public Health Agencies.
Note: As a federally-funded grant, our obligation is to track participation in our efforts. As part of this requirement, each facility must complete a Hospital Participation Letter (linked here and below). We ask that one representative review, sign and return in order to secure your place in the workshop – this is your RSVP. Upon our receipt of the signed document, we will send your final event confirmation and day of event logistics. LIC services are for hospital laboratories and hospital based staff only; public health and commercial laboratories are ineligible for LIC services.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided at the workshop for all participants.
