Point-of-care tests (CoaguChek system, INRatio2 PT/INR monitor and ProTime Microcoagulation system) for the self-monitoring of the coagulation status of people receiving long-term vitamin K antagonist therapy compared with standard UK practice

Summary

This NIHR HTA-funded project aims at assessing the clinical and cost effectiveness of point-of-care coagulometers for the self-monitoring of the coagulation status (self-testing and self-management) in people receiving long-term vitamin K antagonist therapy. Three devices (CoaguChek system, INRatio2 PT/INR monitor and ProTime Microcoagulation system) are considered as an alternative to standard monitoring practice in the UK. This assessment will be conducted according to current methodological standards. A de novo economic model will be developed to assess the cost-effectiveness of self-monitoring versus standard primary or secondary care clinic monitoring. For further information see:
