The first phase of remote healthcare project e-Meuse, carried out in late 2018, was a success for startup Avalun’s LabPad INR pocket lab. The device helped save caregivers time, increase patient comfort, and shorten response times in the event of an abnormal test result. The device, which can perform a coagulation test from a single drop of blood, was at the center of the system being tested. It was used to perform regular blood tests on 30 retirement home residents over a period of three months. All of the test results were sent electronically to testing lab Syndibio for confirmation.
A team of researchers from Leti helped coordinate the project, which also involved local healthcare administrators and elected officials. Another testing campaign is currently being planned with several Grenoble-based biotech startups.
