Group Mission: Point of Care patient testing is the largest expanding laboratory activity in the industry today.  Patients and providers have access to laboratory testing results with short turn around time.  Although these tests are simple, they must be accurate to assure quality patient care.  Educational opportunities for individuals responsible for the administration of Point of Care Testing are limited in the Southwest. With the Southwestern region of the United States serving a large geographical and culturally diverse area, it is our goal to help provide education and networking resources for point of care coordinators and others associated with the point of care industry.   Our goal is to enhance point of care for the patient through education and networking.
