Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Point-of-Care Testing

Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) refers to medical tests performed near or at the site of patient care, rather than in a central laboratory. POCT allows for rapid results and enables healthcare providers to make timely, informed decisions for patient treatment. POCT devices are portable, easy to use, and can deliver results in minutes to hours. POCT is used in various settings including hospitals, doctor’s offices, and at home. Examples of POCT include rapid influenza tests, pregnancy tests, and glucose monitoring for diabetics.
