New report highlights the value of near patient testing

The British In Vitro Diagnostics Association (BIVDA) has released a report today titled “Near Patient Testing – The Value Story”.

The report describes the value of near patient testing in the delivery of care to patients, allowing timely diagnosis at the bedside, in general practice, or in the community, and provides insight into the major role it can play in redesigning services around the needs of the patient.

Doris-Ann Williams, BIVDA’s Chief Executive, said: “Near patient testing provides an efficient and effective way of diagnosing, treating and managing conditions at the point of care. Against a background of continued pressure on the NHS’s time and resources and evolving healthcare needs, the IVD industry has an important role to play in supporting positive patient outcomes through testing innovations.”  

Supported by a range of case studies, the publication covers a number of key impact areas, including the role and value of near patient testing in the diagnosis of sexually transmitted infections, in facilitating antimicrobial stewardship, in preventing unnecessary hospital admissions and in empowering patients to manage their own condition after diagnosis.
