Key learning objectives:

  • Review the complexity and current challenges of point-of-care testing across different sites at large hospital systems
  • Understand the accreditation criteria and how they can be met
  • Recognize the value of connecting hundreds of instruments across multiple sites
  • Understand the operational framework needed to enable hundreds of instruments and thousands of operators to be effectively managed, to achieve POC testing objectives

Felicity Dempsey has been instrumental in the development of POC testing at St. James Hospital over the past 10 years, moving from a few gas analyzers to over 150 instruments. St. James's Hospital is now a reference site for Siemens Healthineers. Her mission now is to ensure that the same standards of quality achieved in the main laboratory are achieved in the POCT quality-management system.
