POCT 1a MOdule 

dealing with connectivity of medical devices

 

Nowadays, a modern health care system cannot be imagined without medical devices which assist in taking appropriate clinical and therapeutic decisions.
Traditionally, central clinical laboratories have performed the tests on clinical samples in order to obtain information
about the health of a patient as pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
With advances in technologies such as microfluidics, biochemistry, microelectronics and micromechanics,
a new class of diagnostics devices emerged - Point of Care diagnostics devices.

These devices support a wide diversity of diagnostics tests at the point of care - that is, at the time and place of patient care. Sophisticated tests are now possible at the hospital bedside, during patient encounters in primary and secondary care clinics, and even in the home.

Should POC devices be connected to existing healthcare IT systems and share information about patients, test results and its performance? Absolutely.
Connected health is all about using information technology to provide healthcare services remotely and POC is no different. 

The ability of poc devices to seamlessly and securely integrate with the existing healthcare it systems is pivotal to fully embrace the potential of poc diagnosis treatment and prevention of diseases.

 

 

WHY POCT?

There are many benefits of using POCT, especially when results are being available in patient's electronic health record. Although Point of Care Testing is never likely to replace clinical laboratory testing, it may well improve healthcare experience, reduce the cost and enable more patient-centric healthcare.
Medical care shifts to a focus on prevention, early detection and managing chronic conditions, and
Point of Care Testing will play a vital role in this new healthcare environment.
