Last month, BioIQ and Alere, a global leader in rapid diagnostics, announced an exclusive partnership to provide a seamless interface between the BioIQ software platform and the Alere Cholestech LDX® System for immediate access to point of care lipid profile and glucose results for biometric employee screening events.
This partnership facilitates the implementation of comprehensive, HIPAA-compliant biometric screening events, and also enhances the testing experience for participants by making the entire screening process – from scheduling to collection to tracking progress – readily available on smartphones and tablets through the BioIQ SoftSuite™ Dx platform.
“One of the reasons the integration between Alere and BioIQ is significant is because it removes the need for a healthcare professional to manually transfer results from an Alere Cholestech LDX® Analyzer to a tablet or piece of paper, which reduces the possibility of human error at onsite screening events,” explains Dean K. Jenkins, Director of Clinical Marketing, Alere Inc.
Increasingly, employers are conducting biometric screenings to help identify at-risk employees and encourage treatment or prevention strategies that help keep them healthy and productive, while reducing the significant economic impact of heart disease and its complications. The BioIQ SoftSuite Dx platform addresses the challenge of employees not being able to participate in onsite screening events by enabling them to be tested at a wide range of healthcare facilities equipped with the Alere Cholestech LDX System, such as physician offices, walk-in clinics, retail pharmacies, and through the eScreen™ Occupational Health Network (EOHN).
