Tips for buying POC Coagulation Analyzer

  1. Facilities should consider the POC coagulation analyzer's degree of automation when selecting the right analyzer. Facilities should keep in mind that point-of-care POC coagulation analyzer devices are often used by non-laboratory trained personnel. However, more automated features and greater data-management capabilities may be preferred.
  2. All point-of-care POC coagulation analyzer devices should provide basic data management features, including a means of patient identification, record of the test result, date, and time. In cases where trained personnel are not available while the test is performed, intermediate data management capabilities will be desirable on top of the basic ones, including captures of QC results, reagent lot numbers, and operator ID.
  3. Some medical facilities should look into more advanced data management functions, which may include, on top of all of the options previously mentioned, the ability to collect data from one or more POC coagulation analyzer devices into a central data repository, which may be a stand-alone PC or an information system. Another advanced data management option may be the ability to generate reports based on the data collected from the PTT analyzer.
  4. These POC coagulation analyzer devices should have the capability of producing a hard copy of test results using a built-in printer or an interface to an existing one. A computer interface is also preferred to allow automatic results reporting and communication with a facility's data-management system.
  5. The individual needs of facilities determine the test menu preferences. For example, POC coagulation analyzers for use in monitoring heparin therapy, such as in a home setting, need only perform prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time testing.
  6. PTT analyzers used during cardiac surgery generally require activated clotting time testing and usually not PT or APTT testing capabilities. The most frequently ordered tests in a hematology point-of-care setting would be hemoglobin and/or hematocrit. A blood donor setting may only require hemoglobin testing, while an intensive care setting may require both, and a clinic may prefer one or the other.
  7. Facilities considering a point-of-care testing program should perform a careful, detailed cost-benefit assessment of the current testing system compared with point-of-care testing. The ongoing costs of operating point-of-care instruments are often higher than the operating costs of central laboratory equipment, and this is on top of the initial capital investment. However, point-of-care testing may offer some benefits that reduce overall costs in the long run and improve patient care. 
  8. POC coagulation analyzers and coagulometers provide physicians with immediate results, and allow them to give faster, more appropriate diagnoses, which can eliminate unnecessary treatments and tests. Also prolonged hospital stays may be reduced, and unnecessary stays may be eliminated, as a result of more appropriate triage from EDs and pre-hospital settings. The time spent in ICU can be minimized, thus reducing treatment costs.
  9. Different facilities must consider different factors when investigating the cost effectiveness of POC coagulation analyzer testing. These factors include the facility's average TAT, reagent and disposables costs, and test volume; the types of tests most often ordered, the areas in which point-of-care testing may be needed and the personnel performing the tests.
  10. PTT analyzer use will decrease the average TAT for laboratory tests. With these devices, the intermediate steps involved with specimen transport are eliminated, and TAT is reduced to a little more than a period of analysis.  If TAT can be reduced enough, the increase in reagent and disposables costs may be offset by reduced lengths of stay and improved quality of care.
  11. This type of INR meter testing can also reduce the need for duplicate test runs due to error during sample transport and unnecessary tests performed as a result of delayed results. The cost of equipment and reagents can vary according to the test types. Certain tests are usually less expensive to run than others, and the instruments needed to perform such tests may be less expensive than other analyzers.
  12. POC coagulation analyzer testing affects costs in several ways, depending on the areas of the facility in which it will be used. PTT analyzer and coagulation timer applications usually have more potential for savings and improved care when used in the ED, OR, and critical care areas.
  13. The use of POC coagulation analyzer testing will affect staffing expenses as well. Time spent in transit by transport personnel is also likely to decrease with the reduction in specimen transport. It may be difficult to quantify many employee expenses but they should be carefully examined.
  14. Before deciding to begin POC coagulation analyzer testing, facilities should explore other available options, such as pneumatic tube transport systems and satellite STAT laboratories.
