The PT/INR Self Test uses the same simple, reliable meters that are proven in professional point-of-care settings. They are cleared for home use by the FDA and have been extensively evaluated for accuracy and precision.
Your patients will be given a meter, a supply of special PT/INR test strips, and a lancet device. They will also receive personal instruction on how to perform the test and must demonstrate that they are able to complete a self-test without difficulty.
Whether it’s performed in your office, at a clinic or diagnostic lab, INR testing and patient management is often a time-consuming, hands-on process with a high cost for your practice and resources.
When you prescribe PT/INR Self Testing, here’s how all that changes...
Philips verifies the patient’s insurance coverage
Philips provides patient with a meter and testing supplies
Philips’ national team of training professionals shows your patients how to use the self-testing system and report their results after every test per your orders.
Then on an ongoing basis...
Philips receives INR levels from self-testing patients each week, and immediately creates a report and forwards it securely to your office, either by fax or INR e-management system.
If test results meet notification criteria, Philips alerts your office by phone so you can quickly contact the patient for dosage adjustments or other intervention as required.
Philips prompts your patient when tests are missed to support compliance with your orders, and notifies you if patients are not compliant.
