Systems Engineering and Point of Care Testing: Report from the NIBIB POCTRN Systems Engineering Workshop

Stahl, James ;   Carleton, Penny

Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field that seeks to better understand and manage changes in complex systems and projects as whole. Systems are sets of interconnected elements which interact with each other, are dynamic, change over time and are subject to complex behaviors. This poster presentation will report on the results of an NIBIB/POCT workshop exploring the future of point of care testing and technologies and the recognition that these new technologies do not exist in isolation but within of other technologies and systems that influence their likelihood of success or failure and their effectiveness.
