Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Ninth Annual
Enabling Point-of-Care Diagnostics
Impacting Patient Care
August 18-19, 2015 | Capital Hilton | Washington, DC


Rapid point-of-care testing is branching out and finding applications in a multitude of settings. This year, we will explore wearable and home use technologies, cell-based devices, ambulatory testing for infectious disease including Ebola virus, integrated diagnostic and treatment devices and point-of-care assays for antibiotic resistance. This meeting is the preeminent source for industry, research and clinical community and is influencing the course of adoption. Join us in DC this August to stay up to date on point-of-care diagnostics and utility in the clinic for impacting patient care.
