Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Tenth Annual
Enabling Point-of-Care Diagnostics
Part of the Eighth Annual Next Generation Dx Summit
August 23-24, 2016 | Grand Hyatt Washington| Washington, DC

Many countries around the world face the mounting challenges in healthcare with regard to escalating costs, managing antimicrobial drug resistance and providing increased patient access. Point-of-care technologies, which include wearable devices and sensors, remote monitoring and real-time analysis, provide innovative solutions that promise to improve treatment outcomes. Economic studies have demonstrated that point-of-care and rapid testing is cost-effective, but healthcare systems still need to adapt to take advantage of it and implement it where it makes sense. The ideal scenario would involve a closed-loop system where the rapid detection at the point-of-care, such as a doctor’s office, would provide and connect with a treatment regimen.

Topics to be covered include:

  • DNA sequencing: Is it ready for point-of-care diagnostics?
  • Managing infectious disease outbreaks at the POC
  • Global implementation of POCT
  • POCT for cardiac monitoring, HIV, stroke
  • Impact of wearable and point-of-care diagnostic platforms on patient outcomes
  • Integration of point-of-care diagnostic platforms and closed-loop systems
  • Detection of fetal cells, CTCs, rare cells or rare events at the point-of-care
