The purpose of KEYPOCC is to form a collaborative network of
point-of-care coordinators with a willingness to share
information, ideas, and creative solutions to the unique
challenges presented by the growth of point-of-care testing

cooperation, and the use of various communication tools, we
strive to develop an association that serves:
As an education resource for everyday POCT issues.
As an educational resource for current and emerging POCT
standards and technologies.
To influence industry development efforts.
As an informational resource to other organizations.
As a member of KEYPOCC, you will have opportunities to
attend meetings and webinars on the most current topics in
