Point of Care: The Journal of Near-Patient Testing & Technology is the only journal entirely devoted to the increasingly significant practice of "bedside" ancillary testing. This one-of-a-kind quarterly journal is a vital resource for directors and managers of hospital pathology labs...emergency departments...home healthcare agencies...doctors' offices...and other healthcare facilities that use point-of-care testing (POCT).
Point of Care is a one-stop guide to the latest technologies, trends, issues, and research in near-patient testing worldwide. The journal delivers must-read news reports, rigorously peer-reviewed studies, and practical advice to help readers use the most efficient and cost-effective laboratory management approaches relating to POCT.
Point of Care provides no-holds-barred assessments of specific POCT products—from cost-effectiveness, ease of use, and user satisfaction to accuracy and precision of test results and the product's clinical viability. Other articles discuss the limitations of various procedures in ambulatory care settings. Coverage also includes the latest innovations in informatics...reports on changing fee structures...discussions of new regulations...guidelines for implementing quality control procedures...practical pointers for specimen storage and preservation...and much more.
An individual subscription includes 4 print issues plus full-text online access to all current and back issues, as well as access to Point of Care for the iPad.
