Point-of-Care Anticoagulation Monitoring Devices: A Better Alternative?

Published on: February 7, 2007
Issue: 72
Result type: Report

CADTH’s health technology assessment report on point-of-care anticoagulation monitoring devices examines the clinical and cost effectiveness of point-of-care devices used to monitor long-term oral anticoagulation therapy. How well do these devices work? Do they offer value-for-money or cost savings to the health care system? Are there factors, such as convenience, that should be considered?
