Point of Care

BBC provides a wealth of custom reports in the Point of Care (POC), or Near Patient Testing (NPT) market, also known as bedside, POL, or decentralized IVD testing. We offer dedicated reports by clinical segment, region, technology, and end user segment. The major end-user segments we research include bedside (all hospital acute care settings), medical office and clinic, and self-testing settings. BBC’s database of knowledge features data gained from the four types of point of care instruments: rapid tests, fully automated, semi-automated, and manual. We help our clients make smart IVD decisions that consider everything from the cultural and financial landscape to areas of clinical growth.
