Requesting Records

Copies of data submissions and evaluations from previous events may be viewed and printed from your PT Central(www.pt-central.com) homepage.

CLIA regulations require that all laboratories retain certain records for a designated period of time, generally two years. It is the laboratory's responsibility to make copies of all results that are submitted to the PT provider.

The following documents should be retained in your PT records for at least two years:

  • The attestation statement, which is found on the front cover of the test kit packet. The statement should be completed with the signature of both the medical director and the testing personnel, as well as the date that the testing was performed.
  • All submitted results and the PT evaluations for each testing event.
  • PT-related forms and documentation of any problems or special circumstances relating to each PT event.
  • Results of investigation and documentation of any corrective action for any PT performance failure.
