Integrating primary care point of care in vitro diagnostics with laboratory services

The adoption of in vitro diagnostics in primary care or community settings requires collaboration or integration with laboratory services. In this theme of work we look for new methods and technologies to seamlessly link point of care test devices and results in primary care settings, to NHS GP and laboratory-based medical record systems. Using a case study we are examining the barriers and facilitators to point of care test implementation among relevant stakeholders.
