Shermock KM, Streiff MB, Pinto BL, Kraus P, Pronovost PJ. J Thromb Haemost. 2011;9:1769-1775.

Although the concordance between the two measurements met traditional quality assurance standards, the point-of-care analyzer results were systematically biased toward normal measurements, putting patients at risk of preventable adverse events due to failure to adjust anticoagulant medications appropriately.
