In the process, patient self-monitoring for cholesterol, INR and hypertension have the potential to transition from a cottage industry into a significant market. The key enabler of this significant shift will be technological advances that will provide accurate readings in a format that consumers can understand, clearly indicating when a follow-up visit to a caregiver is needed. Systems that allow patients to share readings with physicians electronically have already been introduced. Ultimately, the success of this self-test market will rely on monitors that can provide accurate values for the various analytes that are associated with health risk, presenting them READ MORE >
