Remote patient monitoring (RPM) has resulted in great improvement in the experience of both clinicians and the patients. Doctors now have greater ability to easily access patient details, higher quality of healthcare delivery, and reduced risks for the patients. Innovations around RPM cover many health conditions in a wide geographical location.
Considering how much technological innovation is impacting and shaping healthcare, it's a bit odd that so many medical and research practices remain reliant on traditional venipuncture. Anyone who works with wet blood - or has their blood taken - is aware of its limitations.
Technological innovations continue to sweep through modern society. Giant healthcare companies are already investing in virtual clinical trials by partnering with mobile technology companies.

We live in an age of simplification and streamlining, in which important things seem to be getting ever smaller. In clinical labs, executives and lab directors are in search of new ways in which to eliminate waste, make operations more efficient, and implement a smarter and simpler clinical laboratory workflow.
It’s the era of IT implementation, healthcare integration, and an ever-changing reimbursement landscape. Clinical laboratory workflow improvements can improve the success of the laboratory and further extend to other areas including various departments and home care services.
As our international and interpersonal networks grow larger and stronger, a little information can go a long way. Our world is getting smaller. Our technology is getting smaller, too. And it's getting a lot more powerful.
