Orchard’s New White Paper – Point-of-Care Testing: The Great Boom Ahead
The value-focused environment of today’s healthcare is increasing the demand for POCT; and not just POCT, but rapid, accurate, and integrated POCT results. Improvements in patient outcomes and satisfaction can be realized when laboratory results are made available in real-time at the patients’ point-of-care. Yet, POCT tends to be siloed and often is not managed by the lab. To meet the evolving needs of healthcare, laboratories need to actively manage POCT. To do so effectively, lab managers who oversee POCT can benefit from a data management and connectivity solution that integrates POCT results into the patient’s chart and eases the challenges of POCT management.
