Within the field of clinical medicine, in which 60% - 70% of all treatment decisions are guided by diagnostic information, there is a demonstrated need for high quality test data that supports crucial interactions between physicians and patients. As a result, we want to develop one platform to be placed at the point of care that will provide lab quality results in real time to improve physician/patient interactions, increase healthcare efficiencies and improve patient outcomes.
If I could go to my doctor, get my lab tests done and have the results while talking to the doctor I would be more engaged in my own health care and prevent or manage chronic diseases better. Studies show that point of care testing decreases healthcare spend and saves lives.
