Join SMi's highly successful 10th annual Point of Care: Innovations of the Future conference promising to be a must see event!

SMi’s highly respected and eagerly anticipated 10th Annual Point of Care: Innovations of the Future conference comes to London for what promises to be a highly thought provoking and thrilling event. Join a plethora of highly respected speakers as they discuss topics ranging from the analysis of how the future of Point of Care testing will look and change over the next decade to the different strategies medical trusts are putting in place to increase the use of Point of Care testing within the patient care setting. Identify potential gaps in the market for new technologies and learn how to successfully implement these in a highly competitive market place.

This year’s Point of Care: Innovations of the Future conference will focus on technologies aimed at treating infectious diseases, with a focus on the rapid identification and ‘on the spot’ diagnosis of infectious diseases such as HIV and TB. This year’s event will take a look at what strategies different healthcare trusts are implementing to increase the usage of Point of Care testing and diagnosis at the site of the patient.

KEY TOPICS:

Identify key industry trends and market opportunities

Discover new technological applications and the latest advances in device technology

Learn how to overcome potential barriers to commercialisation of a new technology

Gain an insight into the future of POC technologies

Understand the benefits of non-invasive patient testing and how new profiling technologies lead to a better personalised treatment approach
