    Data Synthesis

    To develop an effective point-of-care testing program, issues that must be addressed are the need for such a program, the role of the external customer in setting expectations, and the identification of the laboratory as an expert resource.

    A successful program balances cost data with total quality management processes in the overall cost-benefit equation.


    The laboratory has an essential role in the evaluation and justification of point-of-care testing programs.
