    The past few years have pushed medical practices and health systems to rethink how they deliver medicine and specifically how to provide a higher level of care as patient demands increase. Delivering that higher level of care depends on many factors, but one aspect is providing answers when and where patients seek care. By implementing a system-wide standardized respiratory testing solution, UC Health has improved patient satisfaction and standardized care across more than 70 sites. This webinar will detail a point of care (POC) testing evaluation strategy for choosing new platforms across many clinics, review several considerations that helped guide the system's choice of platform for respiratory testing and offer lessons learned.

    This 60-minute webinar will provide you with the knowledge to:

    • Discuss POC evaluation strategy for choosing new platforms across many clinics
    • Review one hospital system’s decision to remove antigen testing for respiratory illness and Group A Strep
    • Review several considerations that helped guide our hospital system’s choice of platform for respiratory testing
