Roche Diagnostics Pakistan has partnered with Dawaai.pk to introduce CoaguChek INRange, a revolutionary solution for patients on warfarin medication. Patients will be able to check their International normalised ratio (INR) results regularly and conveniently wherever they are with this unique approach. They will also be able to simply communicate the results with their consultant via their phone or any other computing device, allowing for faster and more efficient therapeutic management.
Roche is committed to promoting research to enhance people’s lives as a worldwide leader in medicines and diagnostics. Roche, as the world’s biggest biotech firm, is always looking for new methods to prevent, diagnose, and cure illnesses while also contributing to society in a sustainable way. By collaborating with all essential parties, the firm also hopes to increase patient access to medical advancements.
In this regard, the launch of CoaguChek INRange will enable users to easily get their result in just one minute by a single drop of blood. This solution will save patients, especially the bed ridden and elderly ones from the hassle of going to the laboratory for testing over and over again followed by visits to their consultants. According to a research conducted by Australian Point of Care Practitioners and Integrated Cardiovascular Clinical Network, Country Health South Australia, published in US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes Health USA, regular monitoring of the anticoagulant effect is required and evidence suggests that patients who self-monitor using point-of-care testing have better outcomes than other patients. With this solution, patients can easily perform the test at their convenience anywhere. This solution is available nationwide at dawaai.pk where professional pharmacists and consultants are available to guide and educate the patients.
