The impact of the hand held devices in healthcare, particularly the blood glucose monitors, has been phenomenal in terms of the convenience and cost benefits they have brought to both patients and healthcare providers. Consequently, scientist and researchers both in academics and industry are developing technologies that enable handheld diagnostics for other physiological parameters. In this paper we briefly describe some of the recent techniques that we have been developing for measurement of parameters such as, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, erythrocyte deformability, blood glucose and serum bilirubin etc., using optoelectronics and microfludics techniques. Essentially the available techniques have been re-engineered to obtain in-chip sample preparation and on-the-spot reading to enable easy, efficient and economic testing of the physiological parameter under question. Further we also provide trends, pros and cons of the popular known ?disposable model? of handheld devices and their significance in home healthcare and hub-spoke healthcare delivery models.
