Volume XXVI No. 5 – April 8, 2019
IT'S A FIRST FOR THE CLINICAL LAB INDUSTRY - and American industry as a whole. This issue exclusively reveals that after two years of testing, a lab has achieved the first revenue-generating flight of an unmanned drone in the U.S. Now, the lab's transport of supplies and specimens can safely bypass traffic regularly. Remarkably, the project has involved the cooperation of UPS and both the FAA and state regulators. Also, TDR reports that another government initiative, the National Correct Coding Initiative, has apparently gone awry. Labs could be harmed if they submit claims incorrectly based on the NCCI.
