Health care today requires creative approaches to provide sustainable, quality care that supports the health and wellness of patients. Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) continues to expand the use of technology to provide better care for our patients. Technology can play a vital role in the delivery of patient care and there is an increasing trend to use Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) devices for urgent and emergency test results.
