Haifa, Israel: A new website, called HomeTest4.com, has just announced that they are launching a database with information about different home medical tests and their manufacturers. The site is responding to a rise in popularity of home health testing and diagnosis. With access to medical information greater than ever before due to the widespread use of the internet, many new home health tests have become available.
HomeTest4.com strives to provide accurate and up-to-date information on the reliability and accuracy of these tests, to benefit the consumer. Their goal is to help people make informed choices about home health testing.
The site includes information about tests for things such as: cholesterol, cancer, thyroid disease, and STDs, among many others. HomeTest4.com is a free resource that also includes a blog with current news and important information about home testing.
Home testing is a good way to keep track of your overall health and spot possible problems, but it’s not a replacement for regular visits with your doctor. No matter how accurate a test may be, the expertise and personal knowledge that a doctor has should not be replaced.
Yet home health testing may be a way to level the playing field. Patients who test at home do so because it’s anonymous, convenient, and often cheaper than lab tests done at a doctor’s office. HomeTest4.com puts the information in the hands of the patient, enabling them to make more educated decisions about their health.
