Point of Care Diagnostics
This session will introduce point of care diagnostic devices, and how they can be used in multiple clinical care settings from telehealth to in-hospital. We’ll discuss a variety of devices used in practice, from smart stethoscopes, wearable devices, to litterboxes that send text messages. Obtaining high quality medical data is critical to successful telehealth practices, and we’ll discuss how these devices can be used by pet owners at home to provide the remote medical team accurate quantitative data to make better medical decisions for a variety of conditions. Attendees should use this course to improve their current telehealth offerings and learn how to use new technologies to improve their patient outcomes.
