Aarkstore Enterprise-Point of Care Diagnostics 2010 and Beyond: Rapid Testing at a Crossroads
Aarkstore announce a new report "Point of Care Diagnostics 2010 and Beyond: Rapid Testing at a Crossroads" through its vast collection of market research report.
As lead diagnostic analyst finds, the point of care concept is at a crossroads: the technologies needed to make rapid testing a reality are here. But is healthcare ready?
The drive for wellness and the attention surrounding healthcare reform will surely focus attention on rapid diagnostics. However, according to Shara Rosen, RT, M.B.A., there are many challenges which must be overcome for point of care solutions to fit, and those companies willing to pivot strategies and best adjust to changes in the healthcare marketplace may be rewarded.
This report, Point of Care Diagnostics 2010: Rapid Testing at a Crossroads represents the most current analysis of the role of Point of Care Diagnostics in today's in vitro industry. Other reports have looked at products, companies and market forecasts, as this report does. But in her analysis Shara Rosen takes a bold look into the markets, technologies, and trends in decentralized testing with a special focus on the economics of rapid test use in critical care and emergency medicine.

There are many factors in the growth of POC testing- increasing numbers of diagnosed diabetics, people with cardiovascular disease, and other chronic conditions. It is also expected to play a role in a trend in health care to evaluate provider organizations for quality in care delivery. While this quality imperative is most apparent in pay-for-performance systems, it also provides a framework by which public funds can be used more rationally. This is an especially relevant technology given the U.S. healthcare reform efforts.
All countries are feeling the brunt of aging populations and an increased burden of chronic disease management. Employers and insurance companies are interested in improving the health of customers, and there are some innovative tactics developing in this area. The report is conservative in its predictions and offers a calculated look into the future, based on events currently taking place.
The report offers a quantitative assessment of specific markets in US dollars for 2008 and forecasted out to 2013. These data are provided in order to set the status quo of tests and technologies. However the report concentrates on how these will impact the economics of healthcare over the near term and longer when possible.
