Reducing Human Errors in Point of Care Testing through Performance Improvement and Measuring Quality Indicators”
Jeanne Mumford, MT(ASCP)

Session description: Whether you have an established or new and growing Point of Care program, making meaningful quality improvements can be achieved through the use of a quality dashboard and indicators.

Through the use of multidisciplinary team meetings in your hospital or physician’s office, you’ll learn how to improve patient safety and even help your teams meet national patient safety goals and be inspection ready. You’ll see how to build a quality dashboard, go through the process of setting targets and discuss corrective actions that will help you to meet them. If you are looking for help for your POCT program to be more inspection ready, be highly efficient and safer for your patients, then this presentation is for you.
