Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) is a laboratory testing performed at the patient's bedside at a distance from the central laboratory near patient at bedside. A well-planned and organized POCT program (POCTP), with great emphasis on patient safety and quality, can achieve compliance with preestablished regulatory requirements. The result should be the provision of high-quality patient care which will satisfy the customer's needs.

This article represents the personal views and approach of the authors toward establishing a successful POCTP. It is hoped that this approach will help the POCTP meet the accreditation requirements of the Collage of American Pathologist and other recognized certifying bodies.
