Contribution to ”High-quality home medical care” through POCT
Committee:IVD (In Vitro Diagnostics)
To build comprehensive community care, it is necessary to enhance home healthcare and strengthen the function of family doctors. Performing a POCT (Point-Of-Care Testing) at home medical care is expected to improve the prognosis of patients through speedier identification of patient conditions and speedier intervention in collaboration with acute care hospitals.
- A reimbursement system that appropriately evaluates POCT at home healthcare environments should be investigated and implemented.
