Data Entry Clerks are responsible for entering patient, client, billing and test information into the Laboratory Information System. Information is either typed and 10-keyed into the system or accepted through electronic interfaces established with CPL clients. Accuracy in this process is critical as it is the fundamental process upon which all laboratory operations are based (testing, reporting, billing, etc….) Due to the exposure of confidential information and to the potential of violating federal law, a thorough understanding of and adherence to CPL policies and procedures and compliance regulations are essential.
