The American Association of Clinical Chemists’ Critical and Point-of-Care Testing Division and the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine held a symposium September 26–28 in Washington, D.C.: 27th International CPOCT Symposium: The Role of Point-of- Care Testing in the Value-Based Healthcare Landscape. The event was very informative with a focus on the current and future role of point-of-care testing (POCT) in a healthcare environment with an emphasis on value and quality of care.
IQMH was in attendance with members of the Chemistry Scientific Committee presenting a poster on quality assurance practices and POCT glucose meter testing. The poster generated interest and positive feedback.
