We have a Mohs lab that is in the process of moving and will end up with a new CLIA number.   The Mohs physician is more familiar with CLIA certification and would like for us to choose CLIA inspections instead of CAP inspections.  I am very familiar with CAP inspections although not very familiar with the Mohs lab inspections done in the past.   Can someone comment on the difference between CLIA and CAP inspections of a Mohs lab?   The medical director of the current Histology lab believes that having the new Mohs lab under CLIA instead of CAP will be more difficult than we have now.

Can anyone share any experiences or thoughts?
