How will your clinical area benefit from
Point-of-care testing is becoming more widespread, thanks to the constant improvements of point-of-care medical devices available. HemoCue® has spent the last 30 years working with medical healthcare professionals, improving point-of-care testing for a broad spectrum of clinical areas, all over the world. From diabetologists in
Denmark to medical aid workers in India. From lab technicians in the USA to obstetricians in Poland. How will you and your patients benefit from point-of-care testing?
Point-of-Care testing in the hospital
In the hospital, point-of-care testing is intended as a complement to the central lab. It is ideal for situations that require fast test results.
In order for these tests to be valuable, the instruments must not only be easy to use. They should also deliver laboratory accurate results, such as the results provided by the HemoCue® systems. Point-of-care testing devices that can be connected to the central information system will provide many additional benefits, such as improved documentation and support patient privacy.
Point-of-care testing can be performed in your practice, during the actual appointment with the patient. You will not only save some of the time and resources normally spent on administrating and sending test samples to central laboratories. With the laboratory accurate test results delivered by the HemoCue systems, you may also be able to diagnose and treat your patient immediately. For the patient, this means fewer callbacks, less worrying.
Screening potential donors with a point-of-care haemoglobin test makes the donation process more efficient for both staff and donors. This saves you time and resources. The HemoCue haemoglobin systems are not only efficient. They also provide you with laboratory accurate test results, showing whether the donors have sufficient haemoglobin levels or not.
Aid organizations generally work in remote areas, cut off by conflict, difficult terrain or natural disaster, providing medical care where it is most needed, under the most difficult circumstances. That situation requires robust and mobile point-of-care equipment that can deliver laboratory accurate answers right then and there.
