“I couldn’t imagine modern clinical life without point of care testing, I mean, I just think it’s a no-brainer. Anything to make life of a hard-working GPs and ANPs easier, that has got to be the future.” “Being able to discuss the result directly with the patient is very powerful and already we are reducing the number of journeys to the urgent care centre and the hospital with anticoagulation and D-Dimer testing.”
Prof. Mayur Lakhani CBE
“By the time you get to whether there is something wrong with the patient or they are fine, you are looking at 4 or 5 GP appointments. What’s the cost of that? It’s massive.”
“I’m one of the Core20Plus5 ambassadors in our area, and for those harder to reach patients who are very difficult to get their HbA1c – you give them their review and ask them to come next time with it and yet for two years they haven’t come – it’s those patients I think that [POCT] will work really well for them.”
Dr. Maisun Elftise
POCT solutions will support clinicians in their decision making as results are readily available making them actionable in a shorter time frame and improving overall quality of care.
Testing solutions that help clinicians save time, and eliminate the often lengthy wait for lab results, will prove beneficial in improving efficiencies.
More pain points of laboratory testing from surveyed:
“The waiting times vary greatly between tests so it is difﬁcult to give the patient an idea of waiting time at the point of ordering.”
“Patients experience difﬁculty getting appointments for both the blood test and follow up afterwards. They have to go to the local hospital for the test rather than having it in the practice.”
As the NHS moves towards Net Zero2, POCT can play it’s part in reducing the carbon footprint of diagnostic testing and this is an important consideration for clinicians.
An accurate and reliable POCT solution, with lab comparability and easy to read results, could be considered to ensure clinicians get the results they need for optimal management of their patients.
