Ensuring Accurate Point-of-Care Results Using Laboratory Data and Informatics

From the 2020 Joint Annual Meeting (June 30, 2020)
Presented by Joshua Hayden, PhD, DABCC, FAACC, & Patrick Mathias, MD, PhD
This session will discuss how laboratorians can monitor paired point of care (POC)/core laboratory results. Attendees will gain insight into software tools that can do this, how to implement monitoring of such paired results into a POC quality assurance program, and how this approach can identify factors that impact accuracy of POC results.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Employ the freely available R software tool for the rapid identification of paired POC and core laboratory results.
  2. Design a quality assurance program that incorporates paired POC/core laboratory results.
  3. Identify patient-specific issues that can cause discrepant POC/core laboratory results.

This recorded presentation is P.A.C.E. ® accredited. The instruction level for this activity is Intermediate. One (1) P.A.C.E. ® contact hour and one (1) Florida credit hour in the area of Point of Care/General will be awarded to participants.
