Event Details

The growth and proliferation of point-of-care testing and mobile health devices is an indicator of the transformation in the IVD market, driven by the need to reduce the cost of healthcare and shorten the time required to get test results. A newly emerging DTC segment will meet the needs of consumers who are willing to pay out of pocket to manage their own health information by creating an array of tools designed to enable preventative medicine. This inaugural event will highlight advances in the rapid testing market in two sections: the development of technologies and the progression to the clinical and consumer interface.



The fastest-growing segment of the IVD market is point-of-care testing, and the abundance of health apps for mobile devices will vastly change how healthcare is delivered. The opportunity for remote monitoring, measuring drug response, tools for drug development and companion diagnostics have not been fully exploited but promise to offer unlimited new possibilities. Areas to be watched include molecular diagnostics at the point-of-care and management of chronic or infectious disease. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s “Part 1: Point-of-Care and Mobile Health Diagnostics Technologies: Molecular Diagnostics, Sensors, Disease Management” conference will address how rapid testing can enable improved clinical decision making and quality of care while lowering the cost of healthcare. Advances are changing the current treatment paradigm for cardiac, HIV, influenza, and a spectrum of infectious disease testing. Hear experts discuss the landscape of point-of-care testing and the tools being developed to change healthcare delivery.
