Philips Handheld Diagnostics

Near patient blood testing


Today’s challenge is to simplify healthcare procedures to enhance the quality of patient care, while keeping costs viable. Philips aims to empower physicians with patient centric solutions that can provide relevant information to make near patient diagnoses.

 
Changes in workflow

There is already a trend away from centralized treatment and testing, which focuses primarily on acute and late interventions, towards more patient-friendly care, at the patient's bedside. It is predicted that within 10 years, some complex IVD blood assays will have shifted from laboratory to near patient settings.
