Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Sixth Annual

Point-of-Care Diagnostics

Realizing the Potential of Rapid Diagnostics to Transform Medicine

February 23-24, 2017 | Moscone South Convention Center | San Francisco, CA
Part of the 24th International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference


Point-of-care testing is a crucial component of healthcare both in an out of the clinical setting. Rapid care centers are now commonplace in many pharmacies and mobile diagnostics applications are allowing the consumer to take their health into their own hands. In addition to applications in infectious disease detection and antimicrobial stewardship, the field is opening up to include rapid molecular diagnostics in autoimmune diseases and cancer. Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Sixth Annual Point-of-Care Diagnostics symposium will examine how point of care is being used in the clinic, in pharmacies, and by the consumer. Point-of-care test developers and end users will address barriers to implementation and present solutions to encourage adoption. Finally, innovative point-of-care and mobile health technologies will be presented to showcase the latest tools and provide insights into the future of the field.

Who Should Attend: VPs, Directors, Managers, CEOs, CSOs, Test Developers, Professors and Scientists from Pharmacy, Large Pharma, Biotechs and Academia working in fields such as Diagnostics, Pathology, Infectious Diseases, R&D, Product Development, and Biotechnology.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Unique settings for POCT
    • Pharmacies, telemedicine, direct-to-consumer, etc.

  • Case studies on integration of POC diagnostics into health systems
  • Rapid testing for hospital-acquired infections
  • Testing for antimicrobial stewardship
  • Clinical validity and utility studies
  • Business models and reimbursement
  • Novel and emerging POCT
