Optimizing Patient Flow and Enhancing Metrics in the Emergency Department with Point-of-Care Basic Metabolic Panel Testing

June 22, 2023, 11:00 AM - 09:00 PM (EDT)


Emergency Department (ED) crowding leads to treatment delays, extended lengths of stay, staff frustration and turnover. The implementation of point-of-care Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP) testing can significantly help improve key metrics in the ED. Our speakers will discuss the clinical significance of BMP testing, and its positive impact on cost, time, and patient care in the ED.
