Automating Urinalysis at the Point of Care: Improve Accuracy, Save Time and Reduce Costs
17 Jun 2019

In this webinar, point-of-care testing (POCT) manager Olubunmi Martindale-Sheldon will present the findings from her comparative study of urine chemistry analysis methods, used at Imperial College Healthcare, one of the largest healthcare trusts in the UK. She will discuss the study set-up, which encompassed three hospitals and nine clinical areas with medium to high urinalysis volumes, as well as review the results and outline the benefits of using automation versus manual methods.

Key Objectives:

  • Understand how implementing automated urinalysis systems can improve testing accuracy, streamline workflow efficiencies, and reduce overall costs
  • Review testing methods that eliminate transcription errors and the subjectivity of visually-read tests
  • Understand how fully-connected POCT systems can help you better manage operators, document training efforts, and maintain accreditation standards

Who should attend:

  • Nurses, physicians, and physicians' assistants who cover point-of-care testing in their practices
  • Point-of-care coordinators/managers
  • Laboratory directors
  • Laboratory personnel
