    • No Communication with Lab • Need relationship with lab analysts • Easy communication tools with lab • Does lab give you attention
    • Inadequate Performance Tracking • Lack of key performance indicators • Lab supplied monthly management reports • Program review meetings with lab • Procedures for documenting savings
