Philips Minicare Home is part of the larger Minicare family of in vitro diagnostics products, providing medical professionals with real-time patient information. The Minicare Home monitoring service is designed around the patient, and is intuitive and easy to use. Care is taken that the patient receives training to perform the self-test. Results are securely transferred to the clinical care team. These results include total white blood cell count (WBC), granulocyte count (GRN), hemoglobin (Hgb), body temperature and answers to any personalized health questions you set.
Minicare Home is provided as a service, for maximum efficiency. After an oncologist registers a patient for the service, Philips sends the device to the patient at a convenient date and provides any required assistance with setup and full training. The system remains with the patient for as long as required by the healthcare provider, sending real-time information to the care team. When treatment is concluded, Philips arranges to collect the system from the patient’s home. Philips will then remove any patient data (name, date of birth, age) from the system and prepare it for the next patient.
