STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The goal of this study on the point-of-care (POC) industry is to describe and review business opportunities in the thriving near-patient testing market. This report provides a complete review and analysis of the current POC markets, and forecasts the market through 2018 in constant U.S. dollars. In addition, it provides an examination and description of select products, current and emerging technologies, and company profiles.The study also covers issues regarding regulation of POC testing, international developments and patents for POC testing technologies.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
Over the last few decades, there has been a strong trend toward POC testing due to an increasing demand for near-patient testing that provides rapid results. More tests are being performed at the hospital patient’s bedside, in physicians’ office laboratories, outpatient clinics, emergency rooms and intensive-care units. Critical-care instruments combining selected important chemistry, hematology and hemostasis parameters have entered the market for POC testing in emergency and operating rooms.The wider availability of POC testing has revolutionized the continuum of the patient-care process by providing laboratory results rapidly and efficiently at these locations. The trend toward greater POC testing is driven by the faster diagnostic benefits it provides.The heightened awareness of testing and identifying treatment targets via diagnostics tests has strengthened the role of POC tests in the health field. Using both diagnostics and treatments as a combination have been important advancements to optimal health treatment.Several reasons have emerged for this demand of POC testing, including staff shortages, older populations, long-term cost savings, faster diagnosis and care, and rural locations without conventional laboratory services. This study will address these areas and others.
