vendor who admitted that he had received Rick’s email from
pointofcare.net. Rick suggested that we have Steve Valorz add a
disclaimer to the contact list to deter others from soliciting
emails on the contact list.

Additions to Meeting Evaluation
Open-ended questions that were suggested to be added to the meeting
you here today?
Did you enjoy
the meeting? Why?
Did you have
enough time to network?
suggest any changes to make the meeting more beneficial?
Rick Lebo asked if the members where familiar with the US Food
and Drug Administration database for medical device recalls. This
database is very useful for searching recalls and notices concerning
Point of care devices.
2006 Meeting Idea
The discussion about the MAUDE database led to brainstorming on a
2006 meeting idea to focus on the JCAHO National Patient Safety
Goals as they relate to POCT. The possibility for a roundtable
format for this particular meeting was also discussed.
There is a concern that meeting attendance may be falling off as
there were only 25 at the June meeting and only 39 at today’s
meeting including speakers and vendors. One suggestion was to extend
the lunch to 1.5 hours to allow for more networking time. Another
suggestion was to change the meeting format to mirror roundtable
formats that are seen at many national meetings. A final suggestion
for a “café” style meeting where there is a facilitator at each of
several tables, an issue is discussed by the members of each table
and then at the end of the meeting session, the discussions are all
recapped for the group.
