Point-of-care testing empowers clinicians to use effective, fast technology to aid their decision making at the “point-of-care” to improve patient health. Pharmacy-based point-of-care testing utilizes CLIA-waived (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments -waived) tests that offer near immediate results in non-laboratory settings. Pharmacists and pharmacies are increasingly offering this public health service to promote prevention, early detection, treatment and disease management.
Program note: This program is not tailored to Michigan law. In Michigan, pharmacists are exempt from laboratory testing requirements only for CLIA-waived tests that have been approved by the FDA for home use. Nothing in this program shall constitute legal advice, and pharmacists are advised to seek legal counsel prior to undertaking a point-of-care testing program in their pharmacy or entering into any collaborative practice agreements.
