Remote monitoring and telemedicine

Remote monitoring of diseases at home has been used by doctors for many years to improve the level of care provided for their patients in areas such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and the self management of anticoagulants. Our background in medical diagnostics and biotechnology providing you with convenient and affordable services to help speed up diagnosis and the monitoring of a wide range of common health conditions by combining the latest medical technology with expert professional advice.

Always keep in mind that medical tests, whether performed by yourself at home or by a hospital laboratory, are meant to supplement your clinical history and not entirely replace your doctor’s clinical skill and experience.
