Services pharmacy.  Fno Tsrm Pstrp: “Inadequate use of POCT systems in the diagnosis phase”

The Federation of Italian Orders of Medical Radiology Technicians and Health Professions (Fno Tsrm and Pstrp) has expressed some concerns regarding the Simplifications Bill recently approved by the Council of Ministers in Italy. The proposed article aims to promote the provision of various healthcare services at pharmacies, including diagnostic tests and telemedicine.

While the Fno Tsrm and Pstrp acknowledge the potential benefits of allowing citizens access to these services in small towns, they also highlight several critical issues that need to be addressed. One major concern is the reliability and safety of the results from diagnostic tests conducted in pharmacies, especially in the pre-analytical phase. They emphasize the importance of adhering to internationally recognized standards to ensure the accuracy of the data acquired.

Furthermore, the Federation raises concerns about the potential transformation of pharmacies into “basic diagnostics in a community home” spaces. They argue that pharmacies lack the technical validation phase typically carried out by laboratory professionals, which is essential for ensuring the accuracy of diagnostic test results. They also point out the difference between tests performed in pharmacies and those conducted in clinical laboratories, stressing the necessity for proper accreditation of pharmacy services affiliated with the National Health Service (NHS).

In conclusion, the Fno Tsrm and Pstrp urge for a more in-depth analysis of the provisions in the bill to address these critical issues. They hope that these concerns will be taken into consideration during the parliamentary process to improve the law in the best interest of the population and their health.
