What is integrated diagnostics?
In a healthcare environment where physicians, radiologists, pathologists — even patients —already work as a team, where will the next generation of optimized care emerge? The answer is integrated diagnostics: fully coordinated laboratory diagnostics (in-vitro diagnostics) and imaging technology (in-vivo diagnostics) that provide interpreted, action-oriented results at every stage of the patient-care continuum.
Siemens can help you use the right technology at the right time to drive quality improvements, strengthen cost containment and positively influence patient outcomes. Over the long term, the benefits of integrated diagnostics include:
"The promise of integrated diagnostics is, quite simply, earlier diagnosis and earlier cure by advancing the optimal point of medical intervention earlier in the natural course of a disease."
