Examining clinical utility
What is clinical utility?
This is the ability of a diagnostic test to benefit patients and the healthcare system. For example, the new diagnostic may inform and support clinical decision-making that in turn increases the likelihood of improved patient outcomes compared to current best practice.
When should clinical utility studies be done?
For this type of analysis we require the developers to have a CE marked product and data to demonstrate the diagnostic accuracy of the test.
What we do
We can help to:
- Design an appropriate clinical utility study
- Set up the clinical utility study
- Analyse and communicate the results from the clinical utility study
