When your doctor has to make a split-second decision, you want to be able to rest assured that they’re equipped with the tools and information they need – immediately, accurately, clearly and with no confusion. Whether to get access to treatment before your condition changes or to help ensure you receive the best care possible, time is of the essence.

And there’s no such thing as a moment too soon.

We feel so strongly about the value of early and accurate diagnosis, that we’ve pioneered an innovation to help deliver it. Using advanced biosensor technology, we’ve enabled patient-side blood testing, so that health care professionals can access real-time, lab-quality results within minutes, rather than hours. By putting a lab in their hands, health care professionals have the information they need to make treatment decisions sooner, saving precious time when you may need it most. This can help lead to enhanced quality of care for you and your family. With these solutions and others like them, we continue to impact areas of immediate care, from the intensive care unit and operating room, to the front lines of the emergency room.

To further expand the potential of this solution for health, we started the Abbott Diagnostics Novel Biomarker Committee, a group dedicated to identifying and prioritizing measurable disease identifiers. As our research and findings pile up, so do the eureka moments. The committee continues to identify and help develop blood tests which doctors can use to inform treatment decisions and patient care.
