About Us

We believe that primary care professionals should have the resources they need to make informed decisions when purchasing point-of-care technologies and implementing point-of-care testing programs.

We created the AdoptPOC framework to provide comprehensive information on point-of-care technologies in   8 key areas in a format that supports the evidence needs of decision makers from different professional roles.

We are committed to advancing the understanding and use of technology assessment in primary care to help practices implement and sustain point-of-care testing programs that provide value.
