5 Keys to Optimum INR Management

Partnering healthcare professionals and their patients benefit from            Real-Time Diagnostics' (RTD) comprehensive and flexible                  Integrated INR Management Program

4.)  Diverse Adaptable Model

  • Tremendous success working with healthcare professionals, hospital systems, anti-coagulation clinics (ACC) and varying health plans​

  • The diversity of our trusted strategic partners validates our capability and capacity to implement a successful INR Management Program for patients on long-term Coumadin/Warfarin Therapy

5.)  Results Influenced:

  • ​Patients who remain in therapeutic range as a result of home-testing require fewer dosing changes and other interventions.  Clinical trials indicate more frequent testing of PT/INR levels leads to fewer complications and improved outcomes, specifically, fewer strokes, major bleeding, clotting and death.

  • Real-Time Diagnostics 70.1% average time in therapeutic range (TTR) exceeds industry average and can significantly improve your patients' care and reduce your INR management costs.
