Point of Care Labs
Point of Care, Enhancing Clinical Effectiveness (PoCECE) is an initiative that provides clinics caring for underserved and vulnerable populations throughout the United States the essential diagnostic point of care (POC) testing they need to evaluate their patients on-site in a timely manner.
PoCECE, funded by BD and implemented by Heart to Heart International (HHI) in conjunction with the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (NAFC), provides awards to safety net clinics with a desire to use POC testing to diagnose and set treatment protocols to improve patient outcomes.
