Improved Patient Outcomes

Weekly PT/INR self testing is clinically proven to improve patient outcomes. Here's the evidence:

Poor Compliance with Coumadin® (Warfarin) Therapies. Studies suggest patients have significant difficulty adhering to Coumadin® (warfarin) regimens, which has a negative impact on their anticoagulation control. Read more...

Rate of Adherence to Long-term Therapies Only 50%. In 2003, the World Health Organization found the rate of adherence to long-term therapies in the general population of developed countries is approximately 50%. Read more...

Frequent Testing Recommended. Certain patients may benefit from more frequent PT/INR testing. Read more...

Patient Self Testing Leads To More Time in Therapeutic Range. Clinical studies demonstrate that PT/INR self testing significantly improves time in therapeutic range (TTR) for select groups of patients, compared to testing done in physician offices or anticoagulation clinics. Read more...

Weekly Testing Reduced Chance of Major Adverse Events. A study found weekly patient self testing can significantly reduce the chance of major adverse events. Read more...

Patient Self Testing Makes Weekly Testing Possible. Patient self testing not only increases frequency of testing, it also enables better patient involvement and outcomes. Read more...

Out-of-range Results More Dangerous than Many Believe. The risk of adverse events grows exponentially when INR is below 2.5 or above 4.9. Read more...

Patient Self Testing Meters are Highly Accurate. When used by trained patients, patient self testing meters provide up to 97% correlation to results obtained by a lab or at the point of care. Read more...

Patients Prefer Self Testing. Researchers found self testing is a reliable alternative to clinic testing. The majority of patients prefered self testing over lab testing and self reported a high degree of confidence in their own ability to conduct the simple fingerstick test. Read more...
