Between the changing healthcare environment, the depth of regulatory demands placed upon laboratories, and the demand for further education, COLA recognized the value and impact continuing education has on driving quality laboratory medicine. COLA formed COLA Resources, Inc. (CRI®), which independently focuses on the educational needs of this ever-changing environment.”
CRI® is a nonprofit organization with the following key initiatives:
- Provide an educational platform to support healthcare professionals
- Assist healthcare professionals in establishing continuous quality standards through consultative services
CRI® provides both educational and consultative services to healthcare professionals with the objective of instructing and training these individuals, improving their skills, and ultimately providing higher quality services for the communities they serve. All of CRI®’s educational and consultative programs have one overriding goal, to improve laboratory medicine and the quality of patient care associated with the day-to-day operations of clinical laboratories.
