Anticoagulation patients in Suriname receiving better treatment thanks to Portavita’s e-Health platform.
The Portavita Anticoagulation Module supports the use of Vitamin K Antagonists in three different ways:
- The traditional treatment of patients from whom venous blood is taken: patients can visit a blood test desk or can be visited at home by a trained nurse.
- Self-management: these patients measure themselves with a POC device and, if trained, propose a dosage.
- Near-Patient Testing: patients in care institutions are measured with a POC device by a caretaker and dosed by the anticoagulation clinic.
