“Provide educational and consultative services aimed at improving laboratory medicine and patient care”
Bringing knowledge and excellence to laboratory medicine.
COLA Resources, Inc. (CRI®) is a nonprofit subsidiary of COLA Inc. with the following key initiatives:
- Provide an educational platform to assist healthcare professionals
- Assist healthcare professionals establish Continuous Quality standards through consultative services
Between the changing health care environment, the depth of regulatory demands placed upon laboratories, and the demand for continuing education, COLA recognized the value and impact continuing education has on driving quality laboratory medicine. COLA formed CRI, which will be in a position to independently focus on the educational needs of this ever-changing environment.
Educational and consultative services historically conducted by COLA Inc. will now be provided by CRI®, with the goal of instructing and training health care professionals to improve their skills and, ultimately, to perform higher-quality services for the communities they serve. In support of this mission, there are two initiatives for CRI®: provide an educational platform to assist health care professionals, and assist health care professionals in establishing Continuous Quality standards through consultative services.
With CRI®, COLA expands on its successful LabUniversity distance learning program by offering a single educational and consultative resource for all clinical laboratory professionals – designed to take quality patient care to the next level.
CRI®’s educational platform offers both C.M.E, and P.A.C.E.®, credits, tailored to the needs of healthcare professionals.
