As point-of-care testing (POCT) gains greater traction in value-based healthcare, Orchard Software continues to develop tools that help the laboratory be an integral part of providing superior patient care. Orchard, along with other vendors with a shared interest in POCT, is sponsoring several POC Group webinars in 2018. The POC Group webinars are produced by Whitehat Communications and are focused on topics of interest to the laboratory and POCT industry. The free webinar sessions offer P.A.C.E.® credit opportunities and are given by experts in the lab and POCT market.
