In collaboration with a team of healthcare professionals, Dr. Mimoza Manika manages point-of-care (POC) testing at Toulouse University Hospital. She is responsible for managing more than 1,200 operators in the care units, primarily for daily offsite blood gas analysis testing, and for maintaining the overall quality of their POC testing workflows.
In this webinar, Dr. Manika will share her experience of managing operators across four hospital sites, including meeting the challenges related to the accreditation of delocalized biology exams. Dr. Manika will also introduce how the Toulouse University Hospital POC testing team uses a data management system to deploy an efficient program that respects the regulatory requirements of Cofrac, the only nationally recognized accreditation body. Per the requirements, the competence of POC testing personnel is evaluated, monitored, and periodically reassessed, with relevant records regularly maintained.
