Laboratory Performance Information Exchange System

CDC's Public Health Practice Program Office, Model Performance Evaluation Program, invites laboratories to participate in its recently enhanced, computer-based electronic information exchange system. This system, called the Laboratory Performance Information Exchange System (LPIES), was developed to improve laboratory performance through retroviral and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-related testing problem identification and resolution; electronic messages and conferences for communication among laboratorians; electronic collection and distribution of laboratory testing performance evaluation data; and access to AIDS-related laboratory information.

The electronic communication system can be accessed by calling (800) 522-6388 ([800] LAB-NETT). For persons in countries other than the United States, the telephone number is (919) 549-9109. The system is compatible with most computers, modems, and communications programs and protocols; no user fees or line charges are incurred by the user.

Additional information is available from the LPIES system manager, telephone (800) 322-4383 (in North Carolina, telephone [919] 549-8330), or CDC's Public Health Practice Program Office, telephone (404) 639-2137.
