Proper training is the key to Home INR Monitoring success and our unique Face-2-Face® training program is specially designed to ensure your confidence in testing your INR at home from the very first time you test.
Here’s what you need to know about your Face-2-Face® training session:
> Once we have verified your insurance coverage and you are enrolled in
Alere Home Monitoring, a member of our training staff will contact you
to schedule a training session.
> Alere Home Monitoring will provide you with your meter and your first
set of testing supplies.
> Training can take place in your home or at your doctor’s office.
> The amount of time needed for each training session depends on the
individual, but the usual time is approximately 1 hour.
> During training you and/or your caregiver will learn how to operate your
new INR meter, how to obtain a blood sample with a simple fingerstick,
and how to report the results.
