The information you provide will be published in an aggregate analysis of laboratory supply shortages in an effort to raise attention and awareness of challenges clinical labs face in meeting testing needs.
Sharing Clinical Laboratory Data
Single laboratory data will be the unit of analysis, and will be used to analyze and visualize shortages at the national and state level. Data generally will be published in aggregate form, and, at ASM’s discretion, some data may be published in de-identified single laboratory data form.
In the event that local, state or national governmental agencies request laboratory level data in order to address supply shortages, ASM will contact the relevant laboratory(ies) and request separate written authorization for the release of this data. If ASM is compelled by law to disclose Proprietary Information, it shall provide the affected laboratory(ies) with prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted).
Participation in the CMSSC project is voluntary. However, you must opt in to provide your data under the terms listed above to participate in this project.
