    Biography
      Brenda Suh-Lailam is the Director of Clinical Chemistry and Point-of-Care testing at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. She is also an Assistant Professor of Pathology at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, IL. She completed a two-year ComACC-accredited clinical chemistry fellowship at the University Of Utah School Of Medicine / ARUP Laboratories in 2014. Prior to the fellowship, she worked as a research scientist at the ARUP Institute for Clinical and Experimental Pathology after completing doctoral work at Utah State University. Her interests in clinical chemistry are diverse with emphasis in pediatrics and point-of-care testing. She loves spending time with her husband and kids, and does cake decorating whenever she gets a chance.

    Abstract

    Point-of-care testing (POCT) allows for prompt clinical interventions by returning fast and reliable results near patients. This important role in patient management has led to the widespread use of POCT across clinical settings. With the increased availability of POCT devices, it is not uncommon to find different device types for the same test within the same institution. This diversity of methods for the same test could confound the quality and efficiency of care delivery, hence standardizing POCT instrumentation would lead to improved patient care.
