4. Standard Of Care
Vein illumination is emerging as a key component of venipuncture standard of care. We use a simple checklist when we work with our customers to help them understand where and when to use vein illumination. Six stakeholders are considered, each with their unique perspective on when to bring vein illumination into the process. Its clear that as a patient encounter goes through the various possible stages of escalation that there are increases in cost and an impact on patient satisfaction.
We ask each of the stakeholders to identify when they think vein illumination should be used by simply placing a checkbox in the form. We think its pretty clear from this patient survey that most patients would put the check in the first box.
