G. Micca  |  G. Patrucco  | 
<p>For many yearslaboratory medicine services have been focused on reorganization interventions aimed at improving efficiency, inorder to respond to new care needs and to reduce costs. In some situations, when the centralized laboratory is notable to guarantee the service with an adequate timeliness, a Point-Of-Care Testing system designed for the clinicalmanagement of critically ill patients could be the solution. These systems can guarantee the immediate availability ofdiagnostic tests for diagnosis, monitoring and therapy, both for critical ill patients and for the continuity of health-care.<br />In this paper a six years&rsquo; experience of a Point-of-Care Testing implementation and management is described in aFirst Aid point service, in a particular territorial health-network created to guarantee continuity between the referencelaboratory and the local hospitals.</p>
