Manage clinic capacity and reduce strokes with Inhealthcare’s INR self-testing service

The Inhealthcare INR self-testing service transforms how patients on warfarin are monitored. Patients no longer have to attend frequent and inconvenient clinic appointments, but are able to self-test at home using a Roche CoaguChek®.

Patients can relay readings back to their nurse via an automated telephone, email, SMS or our mobile app – My Inhealthcare. The My Inhealthcare app connects to the Bluetooth enabled Roche CoaguChek INRange, meaning readings automatically populate within the app. The app can also be used with the CoaguChek XS and is available on both Apple and Android.

Our range of communication channels gives patients choice, maximizing engagement, convenience and uptake of the service.

The readings feed into decision support software including 4S DAWN where the next dose is calculated. Patients are then automatically sent their next warfarin dose and date and time of next test via their communication channel of choice. All readings are fed directly into leading GP systems. If readings fall outside of pre-determined clinical parameters, alerts can be generated to the appropriate NHS team. The GP is able to refer the patient onto the service directly through the patient record, removing the need to log onto multiple systems.

Our INR self-testing service increases capacity, helping the NHS to manage increasing pressures following the initiative to improve the detection and anticoagulation of those with atrial fibrillation (AF).

Whether you are a CCG looking to reduce prescribing budgets, a clinician looking to deliver more efficient ways of working or a business manager looking to consolidate services, our INR self-testing service brings benefits to the entire health economy.

Our service also works for patients who already own their own self-testing device.

Our INR self-testing service is powered by our national digital health platform.

View this infographic to see how the service works.

Our self-testing study concluded patient’s time in therapeutic range (TTR) improved by 20 per cent for 70 per cent of patients. In comparison, a controlled cohort of clinic based patients had seen only 49 per cent of their cohort improve by an average of 2 per cent. This improved TTR predicts to save 400-500 strokes per annum.
