Sysmex America is providing a grant to the Clinical Lab 2.0 value-based laboratory initiative to support a multi-institutional demonstration project related to the early detection, intervention, and prevention of anemia.
Clinical Lab 2.0 is backed by the Project Santa Fe Foundation, which was founded in 2016 by Geisinger Health, the Henry Ford Health System, Northwell Health, and TriCore Reference Laboratories. The initiative supports multi-institutional demonstration projects that show the value of lab diagnostics to reduce healthcare costs on a global scale.
Sysmex noted in a statement that it is the first corporate sponsor for Clinical Lab 2.0. Routine complete blood count testing for anemia has potential for early detection of the disease, as well as for reducing complication rates and associated costs, according to the company.
