Editor's Welcome

This is the third and final installment of our series concerning sales and marketing practices and the associated compliance implications for clinical laboratories.

As you will see, depending on the circumstances, some of these practices may expose clinical laboratories to significant liability.

Also, several of our subscribers have identified an error in the CodeMap Compliance Briefing from 3/5/04.
