Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fifth Annual

Point-of-Care Diagnostics

Examining Rapid Diagnostics from Clinic to Consumer

March 10-11, 2016 | Hilton San Francisco Union Square | San Francisco, CA
Part of the 23rd International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference


Point-of-care testing is becoming 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. Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Fifth 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 will include, but are not limited to:

  • Point-of-Care testing in the doctors office
  • Point-of-care testing in retail clinics
  • Point-of-care testing in consumer health
  • Identifying the proper market - what is the business case?
  • What tests belong in POC?
  • Which tests make sense in specific settings?
  • Billing for services in non-traditional settings
  • Reimbursement
  • Partnerships
  • Challenges with implementation
  • Emerging POC technologies
  • Microbial resistance
  • Multiplexing at the POC
  • Regulatory hurdles
