Point-of-care testing (POCT) provides results of diagnostic tests near the site of patient care. Three major components that POCT typically address are patient centered, value-added quality, and cost-effective care, which formulate the POCT triad discussed. The intent of this article was to address insights into the desired future of POCT, which therefore calls to action for a focus on multidisciplinary or interprofessional evidence-based research that informs the use of POCT to more actively impact treatment practices.
