Finnish operator Elisa said that following a successful trial, the Central Ostrobothnia Social and Health Care Organisation Soite has decided to extend the use of Elisa's Remote Sensing system for patients to monitor the international normalised ratios (INR) of their blood at home. This frees up medical staff to spend time on the most acute cases and avoids the need to make long journeys to hospital. A remote prothrombin reading takes only five minutes for patients with thinned blood, said Elisa.
