The aim of the Close-to-Home Analyses Project is to offer the patients of specialist physicians the opportunity to give samples in a compatibly equipped sampling location that is the closest to the patient’s home. The objectives of the analysis conducted by Praxis were to map the sampling locations of family medical centres and independent medical laboratories and their analytic capabilities, including the samples taken and analyses performed in each sampling location, and to sort the laboratory analyses in E-Laboratory Management Application (eLHR) by the specifics of samples taken and analyses performed. This mapping gives an overview of capabilities of sampling locations which allows the building a central database to aid the patient in finding the most suitable service provider.
