Accreditation of Medical laboratories supports Czech Healthcare Regulators
In the Czech Republic, the genetic testing of human genome can only be carried out exclusively by medical laboratories that have been accredited to the requirements of ISO 15189 by the Czech Accreditation Institute. This obligation is confirmed in the Act No. 373/2011 Coll., on specific health services.
Accreditation according to the ISO 15189 is considered to deliver reliable results and advantages for medical laboratories in their negotiations with Health Insurance Companies on contracts and payment from Public Health Care System.
