The Impact of CBC Testing on Treatment Decisions
Live event: Tuesday, March 21, 2023 | 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET
P.A.C.E.® Credit available until September 21, 2023  |  Florida Lab Credit available

The Complete Blood Count (CBC) test is the most common laboratory hematology analyzer test conducted worldwide. It measures the production of blood cells, gives information on essential components of the blood, and identifies a patient’s oxygen-carrying capacity. Evaluating and interpreting the results of the CBC test is critical to providing patients with the highest quality care.

However, there is a significant healthcare need for faster turnaround time of the CBC test, enabling expedited clinical decision making for improved patient care. Traditional STAT CBC’s may take 30-90 minutes for results from blood sampling to delivery of CBC results (vein to brain). This may impact patient treatment decision-making, resulting in errors, delays, and inefficiencies.

This webinar will focus on advances in a new FDA cleared technology that have allowed POC CBC testing with new alternative options for where, when, and how a POC CBC test can be performed. It will also discuss the economic considerations for CBC results as they affect basic cost per test reimbursement, overall patient treatment costs, and decision-making.

This webinar will:
  • Evaluate the impact of 3-minute STAT CBC and 5 minute 5 part Diff results on decision making in the various clinical department for specific patients.
  • Discuss the economic considerations for CBC results as they affect basic cost per test reimbursement, overall patient treatment costs, and decision-making.
  • Analyze how traditional large and miniaturized hematology equipment at the POC can result in clinical, operational, and economical compromises.
  • Identify the advancements in point of care CBC testing technologies.
