In vitro diagnostics (IVDs) play an important role in enhancing the healthcare delivery as they drive more than half of the world’s medical decisions. They help clinicians in several ways, from detecting diseases and determining causes to monitoring patient progress and improving patient outcomes.
In fact, in modern healthcare, IVDs go far beyond merely telling a doctor whether a patient has a certain disease or not. IVDs empower doctors to make better decisions about their patients’ health, allow patients to have increased control over their well being, and give payers the peace of mind that they are investing in right solutions for the patients.
Today, sophisticated technologies such as cloud, mobility, and data analytics are driving the development of robust IVDs solutions. The lab tests have now become much easier and less error-prone and consequently, have given birth to personalized treatment and home-based testing. The technological growth in the IVDs landscape has also helped in the emergence of point-of-care (POC) tests. For example, if a doctor is treating a critically-ill patient and has to make life-saving decisions within minutes, he can do POC tests and get immediate results.
As the demand for sophisticated diagnostic services grows, so does the market for IVDs solutions. When evaluating these solutions, healthcare providers need to use rigorous selection criteria, especially efficiency and reliability. Besides, the typically high cost of these diagnostic devices means that comprehensive post-sales services need to be evaluated. So to help CIOs find the best solutions, a distinguished panel comprising CEOs, CIOs, analysts and the Medtech Outlook’s editorial board has selected the leading IVDs Technology Solution Providers. In our selection, we looked at the vendor’s capability to fulfill the burning need for cost-effective and flexible solutions that add value to the IVDs landscape. We present to you Medtech Outlook’s ”Top 10 In-Vitro Diagnostics Technology Solution Providers – 2018.”
