The range of utility of point-of-care testing is broad, and ranges from influenza, HIV, emerging pathogens, cardiology, stroke, even cancer applications. The demand for automated and integrated systems and the number of players in the field is growing exponentially. This meeting will showcase technology development with the clinical perspective on where the tests are needed and how they are being used. Case studies to illustrate the impact on patient management and quality of care will show striking examples of the new paradigm in medicine. This meeting will answer what the dominant technologies will be for POC, and how to influence the commercialization and adoption of tests.
