Connect to your system partners with a Laboratory System Improvement Program (L-SIP) assessment, now available to all state and local public health laboratory systems. Thirty-one states and four local municipalities have already completed an L-SIP assessment. Three states have completed an L-SIP reassessment.
APHL’s Laboratory System Improvement Program (L-SIP) advances the efficacy of state and local public health laboratory systems through a guided process of performance evaluation, system improvements, and periodic evaluation and reassessment. Participating member laboratories receive resources and technical assistance to guide them on their way to system excellence.
Here are some of the benefits that L-SIP produces for state and local public health laboratory systems:
