What is compliance?
Compliance means following a rule or request. In healthcare laboratory operations, when we talk about compliance, we refer to complying with the rules, regulations, policies, and laws created and enforced by, among others, federal and state Governments, Government Healthcare Programs, insurance programs, and any public or private payor.
What are ethics?
Ethics go beyond what is circumscribed by Laws and means to DO THE RIGHT THING.

We will not pursue or be involved in any business opportunity that comes with or requires unethical or illegal activity.
