Point-of-care medicine is key to providing better healthcare. Matching the patient examination with test results as part of a face-to-face discussion with the physician will allow for a significantly improved diagnostics and treatment process. But true point-of-care testing remains elusive. Urine analysis and basic chemistry have been solved, but the third pillar of point-of-care testing, complete blood count (CBC), is still missing, mainly due to technology barriers. Once this is solved, real point of care medicine will become possible.
