Performed on blood, tissue or other patient samples, in vitro diagnostics (IVD) are a critical source of objective information for improved disease management and patient care.
In modern healthcare, in vitro diagnostics go far beyond simply telling a doctor whether a patient has a certain disease or not. Diagnostics allows laboratories to be the reliable partners that healthcare professionals need. It empowers doctors to make the right decisions for their patients at the right time; it allows people to have improved control over their health and wellbeing; and it gives payers and policymakers the confidence that they are investing in the right solutions for patients and the future of healthcare.
Especially in India, where healthcare spends are largely borne by the patient, modern diagnostics is important, as itreduces costs by diminishing subsequent health problems, reducing hospitalization and avoids unnecessary treatment. The future of sustainable healthcare depends on diagnostics.
