HEIVA is a cutting-edge device which aims to enhance blood collection for patients. HEIVA is a medical robotic solution for blood test developed by BHealthCare. It will provide a puncture with an accurate first stick attempt thanks to the precision of our embedded medical robotics and our unique high-end imaging technology.
Lab safety, patient and medical assistant’s safety
HEIVA is a medical robot developed to enhance patient blood collection. It is designed to improve both patient comfort and safety as well as medical assistants’ security, because HEIVA handles the needles and the needle stick.
A time gain for your blood analysis lab
People across all industries battle to gain time across all specializations by finding ways to standardize their processes. HEIVA, our medical robot developed to enhance patient blood collection brings a time gain for laboratories thanks to its unique technology.
Better management of human resources with no staff shortage
HEIVA is designed to work continuously during the day. Your healthcare team can focus on helping patients while HEIVA reduces the manual procedures they have to undertake. This will both facilitate the organization of your laboratory and safely protect your healthcare team in the best possible way.
HEIVA helps reduce preanalytical errors during the blood test process
Preanalytical errors still represent 70% of clinical laboratory errors, and respecting all current good practices in the preanalytical phase is the everyday challenge for the biologist’s team that affects the results of blood tests. Medical robotics for your blood tests is now both an opportunity and a reality thanks to HEIVA.
HEIVA increases the comfort level of all your patients
One of the strongest points in favor of the HEIVA solution is the comfort it gives the patient. The entire solution is dedicated to looking after them. In effect, everything is done to allow the patient to feel relaxed and to not even feel the needle insertion.
Part business angels, part laboratory professionals, they are the reason for the success of our story. Our Strategic Committee has been a real support for BHealthCare in terms of decision making, market access and vision. They have all been actors in the healthcare industry for years and now show their trust in HEIVA, our medical robot for blood tests.
Our Scientific Committee members are the drivers of our solution. They come from a wide range of clinical laboratories and are our best advisors about the quality of blood samples and the best pathway for patients to take for blood collection. BHealthCare wants to improve the patient experience using HEIVA, our medical robotic solution for blood tests, and having the experience of our Scientific Committee behind us promises a real, safe solution for all blood collection needs.

BHealthCare has big dreams for its future. In the coming decades, we want to adapt our medical robotic solution to blood donation and blood transfusion for the benefits of our patient. Thanks to robotic standardization of the processes design, we have a chance to reduce stress and pain associated with a venipuncture and to improve the quality of the preanalytical phase.
From the very beginning, BHealthCare has been convinced that automated robotic blood draw could bring a number of benefits to medical assistants and patients. The fact that 70% of all errors in clinical laboratories come from the preanalytical phase has driven BHealthCare to improve the patient experience and patient diagnostics.
Labelling blood samples during blood collection
Whilst there are many points to respect during the blood draw process, the correct labelling of blood tubes with the right information is particularly important. It’s vital to identify the right patient, the time of collection and to include all the other data needed by healthcare professionals.
