CAP Survey Confirms COVID-19 Testing Challenges – View Report and Town Hall provided by CAP

The College of American Pathologists (CAP) recently surveyed directors of clinical laboratories nationwide regarding the rate of COVID-19 testing, key barriers to expanding testing, and the impact on pathologists and other laboratory professionals. The objective of the survey was to gather real time data to better inform leaders, elected officials, and government regulators of the challenges laboratories are facing and to identify what laboratories need as they strive to deliver quality testing for the patient populations they serve. The survey confirmed that while clinical laboratories are expanding testing, over 60% of laboratory directors report difficulties in obtaining critical supplies needed to conduct COVID-19 testing.
