Point of care testing or POCT encompasses all tests that are performed at the site of point of care where the patient is undergoing care or treatment. It is an essential part of healthcare diagnostics as it enables the detection of analytes near to the patient, therefore facilitating better disease diagnosis, monitoring, and management. Point of care devices is helpful in diagnosing the diseases at the early stages.
POCT test allows physicians and medical staff real-time, lab-quality diagnostic results immediately (within minutes rather than hours) without any delay.
Know anyone building innovative solutions that belong in this 'Point Of Care Testing'?
The seventh annual IEEE EMB Strategic Conference will focus on point-of-care technologies (HI-POCT) for healthcare, emphasizing funding opportunities and the promise and pitfalls of the journey from idea to the patient. The conference will provide a strategic forum in which clinicians, industry experts, innovation experts, researchers and students will examine how to define unmet clinical needs and successfully travel along the innovation cycle towards commercialization and patient impact. Clinical, technological, regulatory, and marketing aspects of this learnable process will be stressed.
Expert panels will discuss learnings in the development, translation and commercialization of technologies related to Covid-19, and challenges in bringing medical care innovation to community health.
The overall goal of the strategic conference is to provide opportunities for stakeholders to explore collaborations and synergies to accelerate HI-POCT technologies for improving global and deep space healthcare at an affordable cost.
