Knowing is caring
HemoCue, global leader in Point‐of‐Care testing, organized a scientific symposium presenting the next step in the HemoCue continuous effort to eradicate anemia, through cloud based connectivity.
The HemoCue® HealthTrender Anemia, real time data for immediate insight, was demonstrated and launched.
With a prevalence of up to 80% in developing countries Anemia forms one of the most serious global public health challenges. Left untreated, anemia can have devastating effects on the prosperity of an entire society. The physical and cognitive losses due to iron deficiency anemia have a significant effect on the Gross Domestic Product –in some developing countries up to as much as 4 %. Early and accurate diagnosis can play a key role in improving treatment outcomes in anemia. Detection methods that are fast, accurate and reliable is the way forward in in the ongoing fight against anemia.
Many of the governmental programs are executed in rural areas under harsh conditions with limited access to neither electricity nor pure water combined with a poor infrastructure where it becomes virtually impossible to collect data.
What is measured gets done
The HemoCue® HealthTrender Anemia is a cloud based solution that can help to overcome these challenges by using real-time data captured from the HemoCue® Hb201+ Analyzer in the field. Data collected help policy makers manoeuver and consistent monitor hemoglobin levels in the target groups.
Products from HemoCue - part of the Radiometer Group - are used in more than 130 countries. Working with healthcare professionals within various clinical areas worldwide, HemoCue has developed a profound understanding of varying needs.
