Last updated

Share Print

The implementation of non-invasive, real-time hemoglobin monitoring as an innovative solution addresses the costly and discomforting aspects of laboratory testing, improving Veteran care. By adopting this technology, we can reduce phlebotomist touchpoints, minimize serial blood draws, increase patient comfort, and expedite clinical decision-making. The benefits extend to various settings within VA hospitals, including blood loss monitoring, surgical procedures, hemoglobin assessment, and home anemia monitoring.

This innovation is emerging and worth watching as it is being assessed in early implementations. See more emerging innovations.
