Increase clinic capacity by 12% with INRstar’s new self-testing programme.

Building on 20 years of anticoagulation expertise in the NHS with INRstar, we are developing a range of care programmes delivered via engage, an easy-to-use app designed to give individuals the knowledge, skills and confidence to gain freedom and feel more in control of their health. Our first programme offers a clinically risk assessed and safe option for your patients to test their INR at home.

Self-testing with the engage app

There is no extra work for your practice. We take care of the whole setup process including the step-by-step training and support your patients need to learn how to self-test. Once you confirm they are trained and competent, your patients can begin to self-test independently and send their INR result directly to your clinic via engage. You can review the results in INRstar and send them their new dosing schedule.

Watch this video to see how your patient will self-test with the engage app.
