Point-of-Care Testing

Point-of-care testing at Geisinger includes a wide variety of tests such as blood gas, general chemistry, pregnancy, urinalysis, coagulation (TEG, PT/INR).  The Point-of-Care Testing Department verifies that the clinically appropriate point-of-care testing is used to ensure testing quality and patient safety.  Test accuracy is ensured through personnel training, procedures and other quality assurance practices. Because point-of-care testing is often performed at bedside by doctors or nursing staff, and results are usually obtained in two minutes or less, patients are able to receive more timely and appropriate medical treatment.
